They depict a photo, published in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung , of a computer-generated simulacrum of reflections from the silicon dioxide found in insects' shells.
Coming full-circle from his early Table in which he cancelled his photorealist image with haptic swirls of grey paint,  in , Richter produced the first of a group of grey monochromes that consist exclusively of the textures resulting from different methods of paint application. In , Richter first gave the title Abstract Painting to one of his works.
By presenting a painting without even a few words to name and explain it, he felt he was "letting a thing come, rather than creating it. Throughout his process, Richter uses the same techniques he uses in his representational paintings, blurring and scraping to veil and expose prior layers.
From the mids, Richter began to use a homemade squeegee to rub and scrape the paint that he had applied in large bands across his canvases. The following are Richter's answers:. The Grey Pictures were done at a time when there were monochrome paintings everywhere. I painted them nonetheless. In the s the artist began to run his squeegee up and down the canvas in an ordered fashion to produce vertical columns that take on the look of a wall of planks. Richter's abstract work and its illusion of space developed out of his incidental process: an accumulation of spontaneous, reactive gestures of adding, moving, and subtracting paint.
Despite unnatural palettes, spaceless sheets of color, and obvious trails of the artist's tools, the abstract pictures often act like windows through which we see the landscape outside.

As in his representational paintings, there is an equalization of illusion and paint. In those paintings, he reduces worldly images to mere incidents of Art. Similarly, in his abstract pictures, Richter exalts spontaneous, intuitive mark-making to a level of spatial logic and believability. Firenze continues a cycle of 99 works conceived in the autumn of and executed in the same year and thereafter.
After , Richter made a number of works that dealt with scientific phenomena, in particular, with aspects of reality that cannot be seen by the naked eye. This work was published in as a book entitled War Cut. In November , Richter began a series in which he applied ink droplets to wet paper, using alcohol and lacquer to extend and retard the ink's natural tendency to bloom and creep. The resulting November sheets are regarded as a significant departure from his previous watercolours in that the pervasive soaking of ink into wet paper produced double-sided works.
Sometimes the uppermost sheets bled into others, generating a sequentially developing series of images. As early as , Richter had made paintings based on colour charts, using the rectangles of colour as found objects in an apparently limitless variety of hue; these culminated in —4 in a series of large-format pictures such as Colours. When he began to make these paintings, Richter had his friend Blinky Palermo randomly call out colors, which Richter then adopted for his work. Chance thus plays its role in the creation of his first series. Returning to color charts in the s, Richter changed his focus from the readymade to the conceptual system, developing mathematical procedures for mixing colours and chance operations for their placement.
Each color was then randomly ordered to create the resultant composition and form of the painting. Richter's second series of Color Charts was begun in and consisted of only five paintings. In the final series of Color Charts which preoccupied Richter throughout and , additional elements to this permutational system of color production were added in the form of mixes of a light grey, a dark gray and later, a green.
Richter's Colours from consisted of bright monochrome squares that have been randomly arranged in a grid pattern to create stunning fields of kaleidoscopic color. It was produced at the same time he developed his design for the south transept window of Cologne Cathedral. Richter developed Version II — 49 paintings, each of which measures 97 by 97 centimeters — especially for the Serpentine Gallery.
Richter began to use glass in his work in , when he made Four Panes of Glass. In , he and Blinky Palermo jointly submitted designs for the sports facilities for the Olympic Games in Munich. For the front of the arena, they proposed an array of glass windows in twenty-seven different colors; each color would appear fifty times, with the distribution determined randomly. For pieces such as Mirror Painting Grey, , the mirrors were coloured grey by the pigment attached to the back of the glass.
In , for the Dia Art Foundation , Richter created a glass sculpture in which seven parallel panes of glass refract light and the world beyond, offering altered visions of the exhibition space; Spiegel I Mirror I and Spiegel II Mirror II , a two-part mirror piece from that measures 7' tall and 18' feet long, which alters the boundaries of the environment and again changes one's visual experience of the gallery; and Kugel Sphere , , a stainless steel sphere that acts as a mirror, reflecting the space.
In , the Drawing Center showed Lines which do not exist , a survey of Richter's drawings from to , including works made using mechanical intervention such as attaching a pencil to an electric hand drill. Lossin wrote in The Brooklyn Rail : "Viewed as a personal and possibly professional deficiency, Richter's drawing practice consisted of diligently documenting something that didn't work—namely a hand that couldn't draw properly. Richter displaces the concept of the artist's hand with hard evidence of his own, wobbly, failed, and very material appendage.
Throughout his career, Richter has mostly declined lucrative licensing deals and private commissions. In , he installed a wall piece based on the colours of Germany's flag in the rebuilt Reichstag in Berlin. In he was asked to design the first page of the German newspaper Die Welt. In , the same year as his MoMA retrospective, Richter was asked to design a stained glass window in the Cologne Cathedral. In August , his window was unveiled.
Soon after, he had exhibitions in Munich and Berlin and by the early s exhibited frequently throughout Europe and the United States.

The Gerhard Richter Archive was established in cooperation with the artist in as an institute of the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden. Gerhard Richter, Symphony of Light', c. Although Richter gained popularity and critical praise throughout his career, his fame burgeoned during his retrospective exhibition, which declared his place among the most important artists of the 20th century.
Today, many call Gerhard Richter the best living painter. In part, this comes from his ability to explore the medium at a time when many were heralding its death. He was made an honorary citizen of Cologne in April He has also served as source of inspiration for writers and musicians. Sonic Youth used a painting of his for the cover art for their album Daydream Nation in He was a fan of the band and did not charge for the use of his image. The meeting takes place in the room displaying 18 October Photographer Cotton Coulson described Richter as "one of [his] favourite artists".
Following an exhibition with Blinky Palermo at Galerie Heiner Friedrich in , Richter's formal arrangement with the dealer came to an end in Thereafter Friedrich was only entitled to sell the paintings that he had already obtained contractually from Richter.
