Your tastes in art seem to be kind of limited, so that might be hard.

My tastes are limited to quality art only.

And that's where I broadcast messages on TV to the rooms where the tortured people are hanging on the walls.

Gerhard Richter, Lesende (1994)

Stunningly beautiful contemporary portrait by one of the giants of modern art.

Some people might know Richter by his study Candle (1983) on the cover of Sonic Youth's 'Daydream Nation'

Only the new? In some instances, hardly...

Anita Austwick- Venice Nights

William Mallord Turner, anyone?



Gerhard Richter, Lesende (1994)

Vermeer, anyone?

The influence of Vermeer on Richter is well documented and I think the relationship between Lesende and the Girl with the Pearl Earring is not a coincidence. Despite this, I think Richter's work can stand on its own merits as both modern and original in the same way that Shostakovich Op.87 can despite being directly influenced by the WTC.

It evoked me "Girl reading a letter"

No argument from me.

Ha, quite true! The first Vermeer I thought it resembled was the work everyone knows anyway, I should have googled! I suck at life.
