x 19" frame.
About the Painting: There are three tiny spots in the sky that
may be paint loss revealing white primer

otherwise ecxellent condition.. Simple wood
frame and fabric liner.
About the Artist: Georg Kern (German) 1938 - changed his name
to Georg Baselitz early in his artistic career.This painting was probably framed in France,
as the artist's board is stamped "Lille".
Kern/Baselitz held at least one exhibition
early in his career in that country featuring
works related to the sea. We suggest ONLY
the possibility that this work is by Kern/Baselitz,
who has achieved fame as a neo-expressionist
painter of figures. Obviously, it's not like
any painting by Baselitz you're likely to
ever see - indeed, it's not Baselitz - it's
Georg Kern - before he became Georg Baselitz.
If, indeed, it is by THAT G. Kern. Why did
Baselitz change his name? Did he change his
style, and thus felt the need for a new identity?
Certainly, the followers of Georg Baselitz
will not find any attraction to this painting,
unless they are also art historians with
an interest in the evolution of an artist.
Note: This painting is offered as a painting signed
by G. Kern, with French provenance - and
inclusive of S/H/I*
