Gerhard Richter is regarded as one of the most important and influential painters working today.

In this HENI Talk, Professor Michael Newman explores Richter's lesser-known and largely experimental drawing practice. Newman analyses the repertoire of Richter's mark-making and their connections to his remarkable achievements in painting, looking closely at works in pencil and charcoal, a series of over-painted photographs, and a set of rarely seen painterly works created using coloured inks.
