In conjunction with Tate Modern in London and the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Berlin’s New National Gallery is playing host to a sweeping retrospective of famed German painter Gerhard Richter’s work, on display until May 13th. Known for everything from landscapes and portraits to abstract and political works, February 9th marked the 80th birthday of the celebrated artist, who worked closely with the museum to select the 140 paintings and five sculptures featured in this must-see collection. Spanning from Richter’s first acclaimed painting, 1962’s Table, through the photo-realism of masterpieces such as 1988’s Betty and 1994’s Reading all the way to his most current work, 4900 Colours, a massive abstract painting completed expressly for the exhibition that spans over 200 meters, Gerhard Richter: Panorama is sure to inspire. xx Ashley Churchill
