Gerhard Richter, Betty, oil on canvas 1988.
This painting was given to me today in the form of a farewell postcard from one of my bosses at SMOCA. I thought it was beautiful and love Gerhard Richter. Today was my last day as a curatorial intern and I cannot even begin to express how truly wonderful the last year has been there. So I guess i’ll just borrow a quote from good ol’ Gerhard, though I am positive in context, he is referring to painting.
The tough part is always at the end. The beginning is always easy.
