Georg Baselitz: Drinkers and Orange Eaters at Skarstedt

Skarstedt / May 11 - June 27, 2015 / New York, New York

http://www.skarstedt.com/

Skarstedt is pleased to present a comprehensive exhibition of work by renowned German artist Georg Baselitz at their Upper East Side gallery this May. The exhibition will feature 10 paintings from both his Drinkers [Trinker] and Orange Eaters [Orangenesser] series, dating from 1981-82. The exhibition brings together paintings from public and private collections to demonstrate the breadth of Baselitz’s creativity during this two-year period. Skarstedt is working closely with the artist on this seminal presentation, as well as a detailed catalogue published on the occasion of the exhibition. Georg Baselitz: Drinkers and Orange Eaters will be on view at Skarstedt (20 E. 79th Street) from May 11 through June 27, 2015. In these two figurative series, Baselitz reacts to the work of his German Expressionist predecessors—Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Emil Nolde, among others—paying homage to his artistic forefathers while simultaneously establishing distance from them. Championed as a leading exponent of German Neo-Expressionist painting, Baselitz displays a newfound freedom from ideological pressures with his Drinkers and Orange Eaters.
