Gerhard Richter@The Drawing Center

Gerhard Richter
Lines which do not exist
"...approximately 50 graphite, watercolor, and ink on paper drawings made by Gerhard Richter (b. 1932, Dresden, Germany) over a period of five decades from 1966 to 2005."
September 11 – November 18, 2010
I was planning to go to the opening reception but something else came up. Gerhard Richter is always interesting. Here is a body of work that has never been shown before. Richter's huge retrospective at MoMA in 2002 apparently was not exhaustive, since drawings were not included in the 40 Years of Painting exhibit.
The New York Times reviewed the exhibit saying it was "superb".
