On the occasion of the major retrospective "Baselitz: Six Decades" at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Gagosian is pleased to offer a selection of prints by Georg Baselitz from the Schlafende Hunde (1998-99) and Ohne Hose in Avignon (2014) portfolios.
Baselitz’s work confronts the very limits of color, material, and composition. This, combined with his compulsive reference to self, produces an ever-expanding body of work in dialogue with precedents, including his own. Throughout his career, Baselitz has unceasingly revisited particular motifs. This consistent subject matter forms an anchor within a turbulent progression of painterly experimentation.
