Description

Meet Gerhard Richter, the German artist who redefined painting. Between abstract works and photography-based paintings, Richter pushes the medium’s boundaries and reminds us of its urgency and importance in a world of digital images. This introduction to one of the greatest artists of our time explores his entire career.

From early photographic paintings, along with his famous RAF cycle, to late abstract paintings, experiencing Richter’s work always offers us the unexpected and unseen. Where he once set out to liberate the medium from ideological ballast, today, faced with the overwhelming presence of digital images, he shows us the unsurpassed impact and intensity of painting. He widened horizons in the relationship between painting and reality. A definitive introduction to one of the greatest artists of  our time spanning not only his entire career, but also 50 years of  cultural, economic, and political events.
