In Was die Bilder erzählen, the German essayist Dieter Wellershoff presents a tour through an imaginary museum. He introduces over 230 paintings, by some 80 artists from a range of different epochs, spanning the last 500 years.

 

A significant section is devoted to Gerhard Richter. In his discussion of Richter’s art, Wellershoff focuses on the artist’s versatility, which he attributes to his “experimental curiosity”, as well as to his “pluralistic world experience”.
