The artist Georg Baselitz has been acclaimed as one of Europe's leading artists for his bold, gestural canvases - with their upside-down figures - and has also received recognition in the United States. This volume, published on the occasion of a full retrospective exhibition organized by the Guggenheim Museum, New York, and travelling to Washington, Los Angeles and Berlin, documents every phase of the artist's career. It provides an account of Baselitz's development as a painter and sculptor, together with biographical information and detailed analyses of the major works. New translations of the artist's own writings provide additional insight into his art, and into his radical use of the figure in painting. The reproductions of his works vividly convey the raw power and dynamism which Baselitz exerts over his audiences.

Baselitz's art has never been as highly regarded in the United States as in Europe. Published for the traveling retrospective exhibition, Waldman's book provides an opportunity to reappraise the work of this contemporary artist. The excellent essay combines biographical information with detailed criticism and interpretation of many of the major works. The translations of the artist's writings provide further insight into the evolving symbols in his work, the isolated images, the grotesqueries, and the disoriented inverted figures. The works can be moving or shocking but universally display an imaginative range. Baselitz may not be a giant, but he is certainly an impressive, persuasive artist, and the book should make the public more aware of his contributions to 20th-century art.?Paula Frosch, Metropolitan Museum of Art Lib., New York
