"Now there are no priests or philosophers left, artists are the most important people in the world." ~ Gerhard Richter, 1966

German artist Gerhard Richter (born 1932) is considered one of the most significant and challenging artists of the last quarter-century. His diverse paintings cover a range of artistic genres, from Realism and Naturalism to Impressionism, Pop Art, Conceptualism, and Post-Abstract Expressionism. Richter of ten painted from photographs, either clipped from newspapers and various other sources or shot by the artist himself, and worked mainly in groups of paintings numbered sequentially.

Last year in 2015, Gerhard Richter’s 1986 Abstraktes Bild, sold for $46.3 million. The vibrant, squeegeed painting is one of Richter’s largest, as well as one of his favorite works. The same painting made just $607,500 at Sotheby’s in 1999, then a record for an abstract by the artist.
