I love my old paintings as postulates as fresh starting points but I have to destroy them. I have to make a new manifesto.
I paint German artists whom I admire. I paint their pictures, their work as painters, and their portraits too. But oddly enough, each of these portraits ends up as a picture of a woman with blonde hair. I myself have never been able to work out why this happens.

Comments on: "Georg Baselitz Quotes: I paint German artists whom I admire. I paint their pictures, their work..."
|Birth:||23rd January, 1938|
Georg Baselitz was born in Deutschbaselitz, Saxony, East Germany. He is a German painter and Sculptor who studied in the former East Germany, before moving to what was then the country of West Germany. Baselitz's style is interpreted by the Northern American as Neo-Expressionist, but from a European perspective, it is more seen as postmodern. In 1957, he produced his first original works in a distinct style of his own, among them the imaginary portraits "Uncle Bernhard"/ "Onkel Bernhard." In the same year, he started work on the "Rayski-Head"/ "Rayski-Kopf" series. In 1963, Baselitz's first solo exhibition at Galerie Werner & Katz, Berlin, caused a public scandal. In 1980, he showed his first sculpture at the Venice Biennale.
