— Gerhardt Richter: Portraits – Exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery

I went to see this exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery at the time that we were working together with the NPG on a fundraising piece.

The exhibition brings together key paintings from international public and private collections covering the period from the 1960’s to the present.

 

Gerhard Richter is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading contemporary artists. During a career spanning almost fifty years, the astonishing range of his work has become a defining characteristic, with painting at the centre of his development. Within that medium his scope and output have been prodigious and as a result Richter is seen by many as the greatest living painter.

 

Some of my favourites at the exhibition were, from the top:

 

‘Ella’ – 2007 : One of his most recent paintings and exhibited for the first time. (Exhibition Poster)

 

‘Frau mit Kind’, 1965

 

‘Betty’, 1977

 

‘Lesende’ 1994

 

‘Selbstportrait’, 1996
