Gerhard Richter - MoritzMoritzGerhard Richter

Gerhard Richter - Abstract PaintingAbstract PaintingGerhard Richter

'In 1976, Richter first employed the term ''Abstract Painting'' as a formal title for many of his works, such as this example.

Gerhard Richter - Man Shot Down 1Man Shot Down 1Gerhard Richter

'For most of his career, Richter avoided political motifs in his work. A notable exception is the series October 18, 1977, in which he depicts radical Baader-Meinhof terrorists who inexplicably died in jail (it remains unclear to this day whether these young radicals committed suicide or were murder...

Gerhard Richter - Colour StreaksColour StreaksGerhard Richter

'In this example of one of his early grey paintings, Richter allows structure and color to compose the ''picture.'' The painting is void of figuration and recognizable imagery, revealing Richter's indifference toward any ''model'' as serving as his subject matter. Richter employs thick brushstrokes ...
