Gerhard Richter Painting Sells For Over $25 Million
I'm a painter. I'm also no fan of polychromatic sludge applied to canvas. I also don't care how large the painting, nor who painted it. This kind of work is garbage and takes less talent to produce than the jaunty frosty swirl I leave in the toilet bowl each morning at 10am.
There is no perspective, no color theory, no depth, no tonal placement in this work. It's expensive crap deemed "stellar" by a sychopantic art critic.
$25 million. Plutocrats aren't feeling any of the effects of the global recession.
