Catalogue Note

"Layers of pigment have accumulated to the point where the slippages caused by Richter’s scraping techniques result in rich marblings, like those on the endpapers of antique books, although the tactile quality is more like moving lava with trace elements of different minerals providing the attenuated elastic patterns" (Robert Storr cited in: Exh. Cat., New York, Museum of Modern Art, Gerhard Richter: 40 Years of Painting, 2002, p. 8).
