Lot Essay

'The unknown simultaneously alarms us and fills us with hope, and so we accept the pictures as a possible way to make the inexplicable more explicable, or at all events more accessible... So, in dealing with this inexplicable reality, the lovelier, cleverer, madder, extremer and more incomprehensible the analogy, the better the picture' (G. Richter quoted in H.U. Obrist and D. Britt (eds.), The Daily Practice of Paintings: Writings and Interviews, 1962-1993, Cambridge 1995, p. 100).
