I admit it.
I’d never heard of Gerhard Richter until I read about him on the Tate Modern website: “Lovers of the epic beauty of Rothko, Twombly and Hodgkin will have much to enjoy, as will those who appreciate striking portraiture or the crystal-clear precision of photorealism.”
What an amazing discovery. Stunning. Simply stunning.

“Haunting beauty of the Arctic landscape.” I love that description which accompanied this superb photo painting.
Gerhard Richter: Panorama was on at Tate Modern from 6 October 2011 to 8 January 2012. Admission fee.
