Richter is a German artist who works in several mediums and styles. His watercolors are my favorite but all of his work is outstanding. Born in the 30’s in Germany has greatly influenced his life and work. I am no art critic but it seems like Richter’s artwork is a journal of his life. His portfolio is massive. Reading about him only left me more confused about who he really is. He obviously has an amazing gift but I’m not sure I follow what he says at all. And that’s ok, we can still enjoy the beauty found in art even if we don’t agree or believe like they do.
