Note: “Richter’s reflections of the artistic paradigms of the optical illusions is not constrained to the 20th century, but also goes back to old artistic forms.
The offset print ‘Sheet Corner’ depicts two sheets above each other, the right bottom corner of the upper sheet is turned down to the left.
The white bottom of the slightly yellow sheet is curved to the top and throws a distinct shadow on the large signature and dating (…). The graphic fulfils all criteria of a classic Trompe-l’oeil, an optical illusion.” (Butin 2004, p. 39).
