Catalogue Raisonné of the Graphic Work 1983-1989
The second catalogue raisonné on iconic German neo-expressionist painter Georg Baselitz’s graphic work, Baselitz: 1983–1989 complements the out-of-print two-volume set released in 1983 featuring the artist’s woodcuts, linocuts and etchings from 1963 to 1982. Oversized for easy viewing, this long-awaited and elegantly designed publication comprises over 280 graphic works, extensively illustrated in color and completing the raisonneé of the artist’s graphic output. Baselitz (b. 1938) explained his keen interest in printmaking: “it is the simplest fixed way to realize an artistic idea … made for people with little money, for common people.” His recent exhibitions at the Pinakothek, Munich, and the Royal Academy of Arts, London, follow exhibitions and retrospectives of the artist’s paintings and prints throughout Europe and the US, including the Guggenheim, NY, and the Hirshhorn, Washington, DC. Thirty years in the making, this pivotal publication is a must-have for museums, art libraries, schools and collectors.
