The BBC said that Gerhard Richter was viewed by some as the greatest living painter . Now there was me believing that accolade went to Rolf Harris!
So there! I've been shown up to be a complete philistine rather than the arty-farty aesthete that I'd like to portray myself as. In my defence, I have to say that now I'm aware of this bloke's work , I've been left speechless by the beauty of this extraordinarily expensive canvas. I'd love it regardless of whether it had a huge price tag or not. Mr Richter's website which comprehensively catalogues his work in a variety of media will be a source of splendiferous eye candy and inspiration for months to come.
