The National Gallery in Prague, in cooperation with the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany and Goethe-Institut in Prague, will present a retrospective of German artist Gerhard Richter, his first in Central Europe. It will present selected works done by the artist in the last sixty years.
More than fifty pieces will take the visitor through Richter’s multi-genre oeuvre – from realism to naturalism, pop art, conceptual art and abstraction. The exhibition highlights Richter’s painting styles centred around the theme of “history” – not only the history of Germany, but also of the artist’s family and art itself. The theme of history links his well-known, often personal photo-realistic works with those focused on the history of art, seeking to express something that lay beyond the capacity of words.
