NPG Quotes The Times

Gerhard Richter - Ella (2007) NPG Poster (2009)Question: how can London's National Portrait Gallery, which runs the BP Portrait Award, use this quote from The Times about Gerhard Richter: "Arguably the world’s greatest living painter"? All this quote proves is that The Times knows nothing about art. Look at this poster for Gerhard Richter Portraits, which opens on 26 February, and you must see what I mean. Is Ella (2007) slumped in depression or resting her chin on the bonnet of a car? And does it make your eyes go funny staring at her? Read my preview before you invest £8 in this tosh (CLICK).
Note: the closing date for entries to the BP Portrait Award 2009 is Sunday 15 February (CLICK).
