About Gerhard Richter

About (Profile/Biography):
Gerhard Richter is a visual artist from Germany. Richter has created paintings that are both abstract and photorealistic, as well as photographs and glass objects. He is regarded as one of the most significant German artists working today, and some of his pieces have achieved auction-record values. After arriving in Dresden, Hildegard received training to become a bookstore and discovered a love for both music and literature. Horst Richter, Gerhard's father, studied physics and mathematics at Dresden's Technische Hochschule. They got hitched in 1931.
