Gerhard Richter no longer paints: «At some point, the end is near»

By Christoph Driessen, dpa

Germany´s greatest painter puts the brush down: at the age of 88, Gerhard Richter completes his work. As an artist, however, he does not yet retire.

Cologne (dpa)

Gerhard Richter smiles when he is asked whether he really wants to stop. «At some point it will just be the end, » he tells the German Press Agency. «That´s not so bad. And I am old enough now 88 years, to be exact»

Born in Dresden, he is considered to be the most highly endowed living painter ever and leads artist rankings worldwide. But the human being Gerhard Richter forms the greatest possible contrast to all these superlatives. He is conceivably modest. Any fuss about his person is unpleasant for him. For many years he has hardly appeared in the public. Since his health is not so good anymore and since Corona rules, he prefers to stay at home in his quiet house and studio in the Hahnwald residential area of Cologne.

His three large stained-glass windows for the Tholey Monastery in Saarland have just been unveiled. «This is certainly my last work» he says. In his catalog raisonné, a «table» comes as number 1. This picture was taken in 1962. «The windows have number 957»

1962 - that is now 58 years ago. And even then, he was already 30 years old. Richter was born in 1932 and can still remember the undestroyed Dresden. «Visiting the grandmother, visiting the aunt. Apartments, street scenes I see before me» From 1951 he studied at the Dresden Academy of Art. There one was not allowed to borrow books from the library from the Impressionist period onwards. In 1961 he went to the West.

Preview: Exhibition ´´from DYSTOPIA to UTOPIA´´

The crisis of our time makes us reflect on the design and goals of the society we inhabit and share. Some of these thoughts invoke worry and concern since they bring with them an image of a possible negative aftermath to the crisis. The most radical perceptions of the current time easily turn into irrational fears. Accordingly, the potential aftermath becomes a dystopian endgame: ´´Fear Eats the Soul´´.

Viewing art and being involved in art have healing powers. It is basically derived from arts therapy, which includes other creative therapies such as drama therapy and music therapy. Back in literature the most famous version of arts therapy is depicted in One Thousand and One Nights where storytelling saves Shahrazad (Scheherazade) and heals King Shahryar. In a more limited sense, art has the same effect through empathy. 

The American Art Therapy Association defines art therapy as: "an integrative mental health and human services profession that enriches the lives of individuals, families, and communities through active art-making, creative process, applied psychological theory, and human experience within a psychotherapeutic relationship." Especially at this turbulent time, art can help us to stay in a balance of mind.


A group exhibition with the works of three German artists On Sunday the 23.08.2020 a vernissage took place in the Pashmin Art Gallery. There the artists Ben Schütze, Sabine Suckrau and Horst Wagner exhibited their works. 

The following is an excerpt from the speech by the curator of this exhibition Chenxin Ge.

With artistic skill, the artists of this exhibition, Ben Schütze, Sabine Suckrau and Horst Wagner, create their imaginative art worlds of various kinds. The artistic styles vary from symbolism and abstraction to realism. One thing the three artists have in common, however, is that their works no longer merely create a doubling of the world by imitating here and now, but rather aim at a search for beauty and expand our horizons beyond dystopian finality to a future full of new possibilities.
