Georg Baselitz ‘rich’ art has reached Dresden

It was a great and unexpected pleasure to discover this exhibition. It was the proof that every trip makes a difference on condition that we are willing to walk around, see and stay close to the new ‘prey’. The slogan, filtered by a sense of humor, regarding the ability of the human mind to keep an eye on everything new that moves downtown, could actually be: ‘‘Pray for a prey’’!

Georg Baselitz exhibition in Dresden has been entitled ‘‘Georg Baselitz; Dresdner Frauen’’. On the occasion of this exhibition, the objective of the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden was to mark the 20th anniversary of the fall of Berlin Wall. In all the artworks, we can observe one direct and close connection between the venue of the exhibition and the artist creative process. The exhibition –conceived together with Baselitz- is on show in the Gemaldegalerie Alte Meister and concentrates on works emanating from the artist’s reflections on Dresden and its history. Also, concerning some of the paintings, it is clear that Georg Baselitz has been partially influenced by Edward Munch and the artist’s group DIE BRUCKE.

Don’t miss the chance to find yourself in between the paintings, through the conquerable meaning. Don’t miss the chance to feel the meaning.
