Meaning & Analysis

The practice of overpainting has been key to Gerhard Richter’s works ever since he started to experiment with the medium of photography. In such artworks as Firenze and Museum Visit, Richter covers photographs with vibrant swirls of colours, applying the paint directly to the photographic surface. Nach Abstraktes Bild confronts the viewer with an abstract composition combining several layers of oil paint that vary in colours and textures.

The artwork captures Richter’s continued negotiation between a conscious conceptual approach and the spontaneous paint distribution. The presence of subtle horizontal lines shows how the squeegee has been dragged across the wet surface of the painting. The artist commented in the context of abstraction: “Paintings are all the better the more beautiful, intelligent, crazy and extreme, the more clearly perceptible and the less decipherable metaphors they are for this incomprehensible reality”.
