"I do not obey any intention, system or trend; I have no programme, style or pretention. I love uncertainty, infinity and permanent insecurity." The exhibition "Panorama", a retrospective itinerary, demonstrates how this figure of contemporary painting was able to reinvent himself by reinventing the history of art itself; "Photo-Paintings", gestural abstractions, coloured and monochrome charts. The exhibition at the Centre Pompidou devoted to Gerhard Richter brings together nearly 160 works and offers a chronological and thematic itinerary of the oeuvre of one of the major figures of contemporary painting. From the beginning of the 1960s to the present day, it shows the brilliant experiments carried out by the painter through a wide variety of pictorial styles. From "photo-paintings" to abstraction, from grisaille and monochrome works to coloured charts, he reinterpreted the genres of history of art: portraits, history paintings and landscapes.
