(b Deutschbaselitz, Saxony, 23 Jan. 1938).

German painter and sculptor. He is regarded as one of the leading exponents of Neo-Expressionism and his work has often been the subject of controversy, particularly since, in 1969, he began painting the images in his pictures upside down. Since 1980 he has also made sculptures; in these the figures are the normal way up.

Subjects: Art.
