Baselitz, Georg

German painter, printmaker, and sculptor who is considered to be a pioneering Neo-Expressionist. Baselitz was part of a wave of German painters who in the late 1970s rejected abstraction for highly expressive paintings with recognizable subject matter (see Neo-Expressionism). His trademark work was painted and displayed upside down to emphasize its surface rather than its subject matter.
