Lot Details

As a postwar German painter, Georg Baselitz (German, b. 1938) developed a distinct painting language that relinquished the importance of subject matter, and focused on medium as the primary concern. “Untitled” is a prime example of his work made during the late 1970s where, expanding on his painterly approach, he began to render his imagery upside down. The densely worked surface of this work on paper conceals an upside down nude bending forward, seen from the side, her arms stretched downwards. The perpendicular straight lines on the bottom corner act as the lower left corner of a window, creating a subtle sense of depth and perspective in this virtually abstract work on paper.
