Gagosian Gallery presents a solo show of Gerhard Richter, Overpainted Photographs.This exhibition include works from Museum Visit (2011), Richter’s largest series of overpainted photographs, comprising over two hundred individual images. To describe this specific art choice, he explains : "now there’s painting on one side and photography—that is, the picture as such—on the other. Photography has almost no reality; it is almost 100 percent picture. And painting always has reality: you can touch the paint; it has presence; but it always yields a picture. . . "
