Does anybody here like Gerhard Richter and has been in the Tate exibition?
He is very famous in contemporary art in germany, the Cologne-Dome also made a window by his instructions. Very different to the other windows .
I like the window, and he seems to change his style through the years very much, so I'm really curious, what this exibition will content.

Hello Rise, saw some of his work at an exhibition called 'The Painting of Modern Life' a couple of years ago at the Hayward Gallery in London -those photographic style paintings that he now seems to have moved away from. Found them very moving and mysterious.

Aha, Duddy, I did not see this photograph-prints yet, but hopefully next week. You could come over there, could you ( perfect English, that is!)?
Think,you could not,while you are behind corny walls.
I have to do some Christmas presents now. 'Selfmade' is always a risk. But better than nothing, most times. Sometimes.
In 'getting mine back' I want to start a petition again for PMs! Please Peter, as a Christmas wish and think of the lovely (?) self-knitted stuff you will get.

Here's my report:
I also liked the kind of 'out of focus' -similar paintings very much. Like foto-pictures from far-sight and also the statement, that this kind of painting is more than photography or at least different. There were big paintings, I could recognize in my camera, but not with the only-eye-view. For example : Lion with tourist. First I did not see the objects, but through the objectiv a female lion and a head!!!
There was a hanging that showed the more abstract ones always close to the foto-paintings. As if there would be a proof , that he can paint. That's still for some always a measure, I'm more amused.
All in all very good Querschnitt. If I compare with Miro neulich, I would say, a painter of very rationalized emotion.
PS: When I rested outside of the exhibition in a big leather-couch, with feet high on, there was a sudden fire-alarm,so all had to leave the Tate.
I thought: If it's not allowed, they should have told me!!
More report about 'Nutcracker' or Ralph Mc Tell wanted??
The Leonardo-thing was always sold out- but so I saw my most loved Degas picture first: Brushing hair, or so, all in orange and red! Wow!
Now I finally have to go outside for Christkind-Bestellen!
