Online VIP Program: Gerhard Richter at the Met

The Metropolitan Museum of Art invites you to virtually experience the exhibition Gerhard Richter: Painting After All.

 Devoted to one of the greatest artists of our time, Gerhard Richter: Painting After All considers Richter's six-decade-long preoccupation with the dual means of representation and abstraction to explore the material, conceptual and historical implications of painting.

Spanning the entirety of Richter's prolific and innovative career, the exhibition presents over one hundred works that focus on his specific commitment to the medium, as well as his related interests in photography, digital reproduction, and sculpture.

Encounter Richter’s extraordinary work in the exhibition tour video, and dive deeper into the exhibition with the digital Primer and Exhibition Guide.
