Dominique Levy’s much admired show of Gerhard Richter’s Color Chart paintings gets prominent exposure in the New York Times:
“Upon standing in front of some of these works, I was struck by how contemporary they felt to me and at the same time how historical,” Ms. Lévy said. “When I realized that the first one was done in the ’60s, I couldn’t figure out if I was standing in front of a pop work, a conceptual work or a minimalist work, and I think that what I realized is that it was all three.” […]
Of the works in the London show, only “Fifteen Colors” is available for sale.
For Mr. Elger, it’s a rare opportunity to revisit a turning point in Mr. Richter’s artistic career.
