Gerhard Richter

Info: »For me, grey is the welcome and only possible equivalent to indifference, refusal to make a statement, lack of opinion, lack of form.« (Gerhard Richter, 1975) They are a contrast to his colour-intensive abstractions, which have dominated Gerhard Richter’s late work for around twenty years: Works that refuse any colouring. From the beginning of his work, grey tones have been a central theme in all of the artist’s work groups – from figurative and non-representational paintings and prints to photographs and objects.
