Gerhard Richter (1932-), A Pioneer in New European Painting, and The World's Highest-Paid Living Artist


Recommended Posts

Gerhard is arguably the greatest living artist. Being alive is a huge advantage on the Internet. Also in life.

Gerhard *is* the most sought-after living artist (in terms of what prices his paintings command), but that is wholly separate from greatness.

This is not to say Gerhard isn't a great artist (he is); I'm merely speaking in general terms.

Now, in terms of greatness, he's no Sviatoslav, but the man can paint.

And I'm not biased, either. :rolleyes:

In all seriousness, if we have any Richter experts here, I would be very much interested in your thoughts - I have always wanted to learn more about him than I know (and please don't send me running off to Wikipedia).
