this is my favorite period of richter, the blurred photo paintings and portraits, but this is not one of my favorites in the batch and thank god. this one sold on tuesday for 37 million, that’s ten times the price it sold for just 15 years ago at 3.5. don bryant, founder of napa valley’s bryant family vineyard is the new happy owner. i’m sure he really gets ‘art’ just like his wines. pay him a visit. by dd
