Lot description
This hand-signed offset lithograph is one of Gerhard Richter's most iconic images. This print was published in 1988 and is based on his 1982-1983 series of paintings of candles. The series is reminiscent of memento mori paintings, which meditate on life and death. A similar image appeared as the cover art for the Sonic Youth's acclaimed 1988 album "Daydream Nation." This impression comes from the edition of 250 and comes elegantly framed as shown.
