1025 Farben poster by Gerhard Richter


A stunning large poster by the great Gerhard Richter, one of the most important artists of our time. 1025 Farben is Richter's laquer on canvas work of 1974. The original work measures 120 x 123, so this poster - produced by the Louisiana Museum, Denmark - is almost the size of the work itself. 

Sotheby's auctioned one of Richter's 1025 Farben in 2018. In the catalogue they wrote, "Bereft of any figurative subject, painting has been refined and pared down to its simplest and yet most evocative form: colour...  1025 Farben evidences Richter’s desire to create a painting that sublimates any artistic drive to assert personality onto the canvas. Comprising fractionally raised, smooth, glossy surfaces, the lacquer blocks are discreet, independent units of colour. As the eye absorbs the multitude of hues spanning the spectrum, new illusory forms and colours are created. It is as if he created this painting to control and train his artistry and temperament... All aspects of Richter’s philosophical, historical, and aesthetic concerns are captured in the glorious prismatic kaleidoscope of 1025 Farben’s abstract colour fields."

Approximate dimensions: H 121.9 x W 116.9 cm.
