New Walk Museum and Art Gallery are proud to present the work of Georg Baselitz. The work on show spans three decades from the 1960s to 1990s with major paintings and print works that give a broad overview of the artist’s oeuvre.

Georg Baselitz is one of the most important painters in the world today and perhaps Germany’s most significant living artist. The artist has been controversial since his first exhibition was closed by the police for obscenity. This reputation continues to this day.

This body of work includes the first showing of two key works from the ARTIST ROOMS collection, unseen since they were gifted to Tate and National Galleries of Scotland by Anthony d’Offay in 2008. This exhibition gives an opportunity to see major works by one of the world’s greatest artists.

At the heart of this exhibition will be a major learning program helping us to explore this controversial artist and express our opinions of his work through digital media and performance.
