Oil on canvas 130 x 200 cm
Wallraf-Richartz-Museum Sammlung Ludwig, Cologne

 

Exactly this was the rejected picture.
Today not imaginable any more, Richter is accepted generally, both in art market and also at the population. Even Richter’s abstract pictures are to visit in one of the windows of the famous gothic style cathedral in Cologne, Germany.
