Tate Modern NOTEBOOK: George Baselitz

George Baselitz 1938 | From Gothic Maidens 1995 | Tate Modern

First in a series of artwork shots taken at Tate Modern, London, earlier this month. Tate Modern currently has one of the strongest collections of art on display that I’ve seen in many years, it really is exceptional – here are some of my favourites.

The two Baselitz walls have an impressive display of his work, every piece carefully considered. The monochrome linear work with accent green is stunning. I love the upturned figures, suggesting anxiety. Tate Modern describes the work as “raw spontaneity and even violence… with the use of greens and browns suggest wild nature and fertility”.

Extraordinary art work, and beautifully curated.



    • You’re welcome Michael, thanks for taking the time to comment! The Tate is amazing right now, you won’t regret it. Yes, fell in love with Baselitz – this particular group of work really made an impression on me, no pun intended 🙂
