Gerhard Richter: Painting After All

Met Breuer, New York

4 Mar - 5 Jul 2020

Taking its starting point from two recent series, which draw on photographs from Birkenau and the work of the composer John Cage, this show asks why the German painter has persisted in two contrasting genres – photorealism and abstraction – throughout his long career. Find out more from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s website.
