Gerhard Richter: Truth in Semblance

The Museum of Fine Arts – Hungarian National Gallery is hosting an exhibition of works by the world-renowned contemporary German master Gerhard Richter. The exhibition can be viewed until 14 November. The specialty of the exhibition entitled Gerhard Richter. Truth in Semblance is that for the first time in Hungary visitors can view a large-scale, comprehensive exhibition of the artist’s oeuvre, representing each period of his career. The nearly eighty works on display arrive to Budapest from Hungarian and international public and private collections.  Among the eighty works are four larger, multi-part series, making it a total of around two hundred works awaiting visitors. 

Last year the almost ninety-year-old artist announced that he had finished his painter oeuvre, but did not put off with his work altogether: for example, he made a series of twenty drawings for the Budapest exhibition, which welcomes visitors in the first hall of the exhibition.

Kinga Bódi, curator of the exhibition, pointed out that Gerhard Richter is a versatile, sensitive, often self-ironic artist who cannot be classified in any style, so in the oeuvre the exhibition does not progress in chronological order, but along themes.
