    About The Work

    Reproduction of a 1986 painting, published in 2003, as a gift for the employees of the Victoria-Versicherung Insurance company. This is an offset lithograph of “Victoria I” which has a facsimile signature, printed on heavy stock paper. Listed in catalogue raisonne Butin/Gronert P. 283. Printed by Achenbach Art Editions, Dusseldorf Germany. This piece was acquired directly from Achenbach, who was allowed to sell the prints that were not gifted.

    In 1986, Richter won a commission from insurance company Victoria-Versicherung for two large paintings. Richter wanted to challenge himself not just in concept and design but also in execution, deciding to paint each piece on a single canvas measuring six meters high and four wide. Previously he had painted similarly sized pieces in sections and later admitted that the task was “a little megalomaniacal.” Richter named the paintings “Victoria I” and “Victoria II,” after the company, which commissioned them. These pieces continued his exploration of abstract painting, which characterized his work in the 1980s.
