Baselitz. Preview with Review, Museum of Fine Arts – Hungarian National Gallery, through July 2, 2017

The exhibition Baselitz. Preview with Review currently on view at the Museum of Fine Arts – Hungarian National Gallery in Budapest is the largest retrospective in Eastern Europe to date of works by German artist Georg Baselitz. It features more than 80 exhibit pieces, including early works from the 1960s and exemplars from the Remix series, which Baselitz launched in 2005. In this series, he reinterprets the most prominent motifs of his earlier works, as well as the oeuvres of other artists. A separate section is devoted to Baselitz’s famed upside-down world of inverted paintings, the first of which was Der Wald (The Forest, 1969). As the artist said at the time, “an object painted upside-down is useful for painting, because it is not useful as an object.”

Over the course of a career that has spanned more than five decades, Baselitz has created more than 2,500 paintings, as well as a large number of sculptures and drawings. His stated artistic goal and creative catalyst is to challenge the limits of painting as a medium. The artist is collaborating closely with the museum in setting up the exhibition, incorporating eight lesser-known large-format paintings that are brought to Budapest directly from Baselitz’s studio in Imperia, Italy.
