Special notice

From time to time, Christie's may offer a lot which it owns in whole or in part. This is such a lot.
Artist's Resale Right ("Droit de Suite"). Artist's Resale Right Regulations 2006 apply to this lot, the buyer agrees to pay us an amount equal to the resale royalty provided for in those Regulations, and we undertake to the buyer to pay such amount to the artist's collection agent.

Lot Essay

'Because we were so different, we didn’t compete with each other. I always appreciated the way he could create something that seemed so silent. That was all foreign to me… We could really just speak about painting. The main thing was about the surface of colour or the proportion of colour'
(G. Richter talking about Blinky Palemro, D. Elger, Gerhard Richter, A Life in Painting, Chicago 2009, p. 182).
