on the anti painting side while actually remaining a painter. Hence his reputation. You can imagine that keeping this up has involved a deal of semantics. These are summarised in the labels and the catalogue, but I can't say they are actually visible in the paintings. He makes it difficult to follow Nike Roshe Pink And Grey

taster for the Artist's Rooms, the format in which the d'Offay collection will circulate nationally. If Richter really is a contemporary great, there is no shortage of hyperbole to support the claim. The press release for this show proposes that he has "done more than any other living artist to bring painting back on the agenda for artists, critics and the public alike. " That is news to me, but then it goes further, "Arguably he is the world's greatest living painter. " A big claim, but this is a big show, and although drawn from private collections, it is a pretty full retrospective, so you can make up your own mind on that. Richter was born in East Germany in 1932. After escaping to the West he studied art in Dusseldorf. It was from there that he first came to Edinburgh. He was brought here by Richard Demarco in 1970 with Joseph Beuys in the celebrated palindromic exhibition Strategy: Get Arts. Indeed that was the last time Richter came to Edinburgh.

Much has happened since. This time he came in a private jet. There is a hint in that piece of history, however, that might help explain some of the hyperbole. Forty years ago the art world divided into those who thought painting was old hat, and those who disagreed with them. Beuys and Duchamp were heroes for the former and their champions, ideological neocons of art, have been in the ascendant in our contemporary art institutions since then. Associated with Beuys, Richter has pulled off the neat trick of managing to stay, very advantageously, Nike Roshe One Flyknit Women's

For good reason most painters are consistent. Their art develops as intuitively as handwriting and, as it evolves, it presents a visible unity. Richter is inconsistent, however. He neatly distances himself from "ordinary" painters by defying the rules and doing very different things at the same time. Some of the most seductive paintings here, several still lifes with candles Nike Roshe White And Grey and skulls, for instance, or Small Bather, a beautiful, hazy painting of his wife, were painted alongside his characteristic large abstract paintings. Also contemporary with the latter, Bhler Heights is a series of four progressively less legible paintings of a landscape. Their sequence appears to propose that abstraction is a process, not a state; that it is based on external reference, and not absolute and self sufficient as it clearly is in the large paintings. What we do see in Richter's art as in that of so many of his generation is an attempt to make his own the lessons of the great American painters who hit the European consciousness in the late 1950s. The earliest works here are paintings based on photographs, but smudgy and approximate, or amended in ways that make it clear that they are.
