Get up close and personal with painter Gerhard Richter, one of the most significant contemporary artists of our times. In the spring and summer of 2009, Richter granted filmmaker Corinna Belz access to his studio as he worked on a series of large abstract paintings. In her documentary Gerhard Richter Painting, the paintings themselves become the protagonists, as the film offers rare insights into the artist’s process with a meditative, fly-on-the-wall perspective. Gerhard Richter Painting is a penetrating portrait of an artist at work‹and a fascinating film about the art of seeing.
