The exhibition will run until November 14. and features works from international and Hungarian public and private collections and represents every period of the artist’s carrier.
The titles range from the photo paintings of the 1960s through the colour abstract pieces for which Richter is probably best known, to his most recent intimate pencil drawings.
For the Budapest exhibition, the artist has produced a special series of drawings which are shown in a separate room for the public for the first time.
Speaking to the press, László Baán, the director of MNG, said that “Gerhard Richter is an outstanding, enigmatic genius of today’s fine arts scene”.
Evelin Hust, the director of the Budapest Goethe Institute, called Richter one of the most important German painters.
