The Golden Age of Russian Impressionism



Georg Baselitz - click name for biography

·         The reality is the picture, it is most certainly not in the picture..
-Georg Baselitz


·         ...I paint German artists whom I admire. I paint their pictures, their work as painters, and their portraits too. But oddly enough, each of these portraits ends up as a picture of a woman with blonde hair. I myself have never been able to work out why this happens.
-Georg Baselitz


·         I always rejected any connection with the expressionist or neo-expressionist tradition. Unlike the expressionists, I have never been interested in renewing the world through the vehicle of art.
-Georg Baselitz


·         I always feel attacked when I'm asked about my painting.
-Georg Baselitz


·         I love my old paintings as postulates, as fresh starting points, but I have to destroy them. I have to make a new manifesto.
-Georg Baselitz


·         What counts most is finding new ways to get the world down in paint on my own terms.
-Georg Baselitz


·         The artist is not responsible to any one. His social role is asocial... his only responsibility consists in an attitude to the work he does.
-Georg Baselitz


·         I always work out of uncertainty but when a painting's finished it becomes a fixed idea, apparently a final statement. In time though, uncertainty returns.. your thought process goes on.
-Georg Baselitz


·         Changes in style result from intellectual processes. I continually try to find something new so that I can change. I still do it today.
-Georg Baselitz


·         I don't like things that can be reproduced. Wood isn't important in itself but rather in the fact that objects made in it are unique, simple, unpretentious.
-Georg Baselitz


·         I had always loved expressionist painting, like every European. In fact I admired it all the more because these were precisely the paintings despised by my father's generation.
-Georg Baselitz
