In 2009, Gerhard Richter produced the oil on canvas ‘Blumenstrauß’, a compelling contribution to his iconic photo paintings series. The artist projected a photograph of a sparsely filled vase of seemingly lifeless flowers onto the canvas, painstakingly replicating the colours as he painted over the projection. Yet, Richter did not reproduce the photograph exactly, instead employing his signature blurring effect to abstract the image in a manner reminiscent of an unfocused camera.
