1966, photography/canvas, 92,5 x 98 cm, unframed. - Hubertus Butin, author of the catalogue raisoné of the Richter editions, confirms the authenticity of the artwork. The edition was published in 1966 in ten copies. The work at hand is an unsigned and unnumbered artist’s proof. The partial discolouration is caused by chemicals. The artwork from the estate of Carl Vogel, former president of the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Hamburg, was inspected by Ralph Gleisert on commission of the executors. Gleisert draws the following conclusion: when the work was created in 1966 both Gerhard Richter and Dieter Roth held teaching position at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste. Richter let Roth have the photo so that the last could expose it to chemicals to cause a change over a certain span of time. That concept was called ‘living art‘ by Roth. According to this opinion the ‘Pyramide‘ at hand is an extraordinary one of a kind. - Expertise: Hubertus Butin, 6th August 2012. Thus it is an authentic work by Richter. - Provenance: Estate of Carl Vogel, former president of the Hochschule für Bildende Künste (art academy) in Hamburg. - One of the most important contemporary artist, studied at the Dresden and the Düsseldorf academy, his works are in major collections of the world.
