By Gerard Richter
German artist Richter Gerhard is renowned for both abstract and realistic paintings, glasswork and photography. Alongside contemporaries such as Sigmar Polke and Georg Baselitz, he pioneered the movement known today as New European Painting. New European Painting was an artistic movement that expressed the sentiments in Europe after World War II, such as survival, memories, emotions and post-war life. Gerhard did not limit himself to a single style and cites Picasso and Jean Arp as influences in this regard.
