Dresden is well known by art lovers for its diverse museums that are enriched by several special exhibitions throughout the year. One of the best exhibitions in 2013 has been recently opened on the Royal Residential Palace.
Georg Baselitz, one of the most famous German painters of contemporary art, has opened his exhibition ‚Background stories‘ on the occasion of his 75th birthday.
Baselitz, who was born and raised near Dresden, had been already fascinated by the paintings of the Old Master Picture Gallery in his youth. Those paintings had been his inspiration to interpret some of the master works from the 15th to the 19th century in his own way.
The exhibition is open from Wednesdays to Mondays from 10am to 6 pm.
By the way, further paintings from Baselitz can be admired in the Albertinum museum.
