Alte Elisabeth by Georg Baselitz

Alte Elisabeth by Georg Baselitz

A screen print of an eagle on a lambs wool blanket by the great German artist Georg Baselitz, created in 2010, printed by Kit Grover for White Cube, London in a limited edition of just 50. Overall 193 x 142 cm (76 x 56in)


The print was launched at Glyndebourne in 2015 when White Cube presented works by Georg Baselitz to celebrate the inaugural contemporary art pop up exhibition during that year's opera season.


He says "I’ve got my early childhood drawings of eagles, stags, deer, dogs and so on in folders," Baselitz continues. "Every now and then I look at them, and I think was it a good time, was it a bad time?"

Just in case you a wondering why he paints upside down: It is a method to further distance him from reality; “reducing the images to the base formal qualities of line, shape and color.”

Baselitz first saw painting upside down in 1969 on a variation of a 19th-century landscape by Ferdinand von Rayski, after this the inverted images of Baselitz raised his profile.
