Truth in Abstraction: Gerhard Richter's 'Abstraktes Bild (801-3)'

With a practice that has oscillated from photorealist to completely non-representational, Gerhard Richter has remained an artistic force to be reckoned with through constant innovation. Executed in a rich, brilliant palette of emerald, yellow and crimson, 'Abstraktes Bild (801-3)' epitomizes the German painter's adroitness from the apex of his engagement with abstraction. This work will be offered in our 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening Sale in New York on 2 July 2020.
