According to the curator Kosme de Barañan, “Baselitz tackles the great theme of painting not by reducing it to its essence but rather by attacking its convention”. “Baselitz-Academy” examines the work of the German Master with an important retrospective in relation to the artistic and historical traditions of Italy and the Academy of Art of Venice. It is precisely in its Galleries, for the first time dedicated to a living artist, that the crucial points of 60 sixty years of extraordinary career are put on display.
