Christie's Mayfair

For some reason best known to itself, Christie's Mayfair has opened Polke/Richter-Richter/Polke, an exhibition of 65 works from 30 collections by Gerhard Richter and Sigmar Polke, two German twits who had the arrogance to think they could resurrect painting when it hadn't died. Remember the Coxsoft adage: When in doubt pose a pretty girl beside it. The pretty girl with lovely legs is a Christie's employee staring at Gerhard Richter's tripe Abstraktes Bild. The other two paintings are by Sigmar Polke, both imaginatively named Untitled (CLICK).
