B1 from Swiss Alps II
Gerhard Richter is a contemporary German artist considered among the most influential from the latter half of the 20th century. After World War II, living under Soviet rule, Richter fled to West Germany, where he studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf alongside Sigmar Polke. During this time the artist began producing blurred photo-paintings, exploring the nature of an image's aesthetics in relation to its content. Over the following decades, Richter introduced abstraction to his repertoire, analyzing painterly expression through a technique of squeegeeing large swathes of paint over canvases. In the late 1960's, the artist produced his Alpine series, including a series of prints
This is a rare example of the artist's Alpine prints, dating back to 1969. It is sold unframed and with the exception of some foxing and minor staining (most notable on the reverse) the print is in excellent condition considering its age.
