Gerhard Richter: Drawings, 1999 – 2021




Including several new series of experimental drawings, this exhibition – Richter’s first presentation in a major London gallery in a decade – brings together more than 60 works on paper made between 1999 and 2021.

Alongside drawings in pencil and charcoal, and a series of over-painted photographs, a set of rarely-seen painterly works created using coloured inks are featured in the show.

In these works, the fluidity and unpredictability of the pools of ink, in some cases reaching right to the edges of the paper, are counterbalanced by structures of linear graphite markings.

Inks and watercolour have played an important role in the development of Richter’s paintings.

His earliest known works, a series of monotypes titled Elbe made in 1957, were the result of experimentation with the fluid nature of ink on paper.
Gerhard Richter (b. 1932 in Dresden) is regarded as one of the most important and influential painters working today.
