THE BROOKLYN RAIL - Georg Baselitz: Pivotal Turn

by Phyllis Tuchman

Brooklyn, March 10, 2021


Phyllis Tuchman discusses the current Baselitz show at The Metropolitan Museum of Art which will be on view until July 18, 2021:


"For many observers, the orientation of the images is no longer disconcerting, much less novel. After all, it’s been fifty-some years since Baselitz embarked on this journey. But stand in the gallery with these portraits for just a short time, and people will come in who are unfamiliar with the artist’s oeuvre. They are the ones who immediately try to turn their heads in order to glimpse the figures right side up."
