An entertaining sideshow of the startlingly popular Gerhard Richter retrospective at MoMA two years ago was the spectacle of the artist deftly switching horses, from cerebral sweetheart of the October circle to Great Painter of the later twentieth century. How interesting, then, to get this show of two hundred of his prints, photo editions, and artist’s books, a group of works by nature embedded in multiplicity and mechanical reproduction—principles fundamental to Richter as October darling. Not that he isn’t, well, a great painter, but his prints should provide insight into some of the reasons why.
