You may ask, what is the ultimate problem with women artists? Well, simply saying, they just can’t paint. That is according to the point of view of Germany’s Georg Baselitz.
Despite comprising the majority of the number of art students, women just cannot paint well as compared to their male counterpart as observed by one of Europe’s finest post-war artists, George Baselitz. According to the 75 year old German artist, women just basically lack the essential character to become at par of the greatest artist of the century disregarding the works of the likes of Artemisia Gentileschi, Frida Kahlo, Bridget Riley and Paula Rego. However, he admitted that there were a few exceptions of female artist like Agnes Martin, Cecily Brown and Rosemarie Trockel whose works he praised profusely. He also added that he appreciates the masterpieces of Paula Modersohn-Becker but added that she was no Picasso, nor Modigliani, nor Gauguin.
Baselitz reportedly told a German newspaper, Der Spiegel, that women do not paint very well despite the mere fact that they make up the majority of students in the field of arts.
Georg Baselitz harsh comments about women artists ignited a backlash from a lot of observers including a certain art historian saying everything he said was a complete nonsense. Another critic, Pollock who co-authors the book titled Old Mistresses: Women, Art and Ideology, argued that only a few men paint brilliantly and what contributed to their magnificent work was not their masculinity but it was as a matter of fact their individuality.
