Gerhard richter abstract paint brushstrokes on photos.
Gerhard richter is an important artist in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries; his work spans nearly five decades.
His early work is of blurred figurative paintings, both with and without colour followed by seductive abstract paintings, with a colour palette that is either brilliant or subdued. His surprisingly diverse range of work has received prolonged discussion from critics, especially due to richter’s disregard for “traditional” stylistic progression and his use of photographs. Gerhard richter lives and works in Cologne.
