Georg Baselitz: What If...

Regular price Regular price $60

This book was published on the occasion of Georg Baselitz: What if..., the artist’s first solo exhibition at Gagosian, San Francisco. Marking a significant development in Baselitz’s technique, the oil-on-canvas compositions are created with a “contact printing” transfer method: he paints on a piece of unstretched canvas and then presses a second canvas onto the first to make an impression. With this method, Baselitz continues to expand his own practice of painting and mark making, finding new ways to treat established subjects. The publication features a new essay by James Lawrence and a poem by Patti Smith.
