About this work

Richter first painted his daughter Betty in 1977  and, in 1988, returned to a photograph from that time to create one of his most iconic portraits. Betty was photographed looking towards one of her father’s Grey Paintings, and Richter uses the romantic rope of the figure turning away from the viewer to draw us into the work, frustrating our desire to see the subject’s face. Betty is of great personal significance for the artist but also raises questions about a younger generation’s relationship to their elders. Betty draws our attention not to the girl, Betty, but inward to the abstraction in the background. Betty, is a rather small (for Richter). It is roughly of human scale, and shows a close-up of a girl sitting as if on the floor. She has turned her head and shoulders away from us and is looking almost directly behind her at a solid gray background. One might conclude that Betty sets up an enigmatic scenario, one that seems to ask more questions than it answers. If it firmly displays an idea, it is an idea of doubt or longing. It implies a type of questioning not easily expressed in the painting itself. The work alludes to something else, a question or possibility we cannot explain, yet if we know its context and some external information, we can readily step into a deeper conversation than the surface of the image provides. One may hesitate to call this a spiritual painting, given all the implications the term can bring, but it seems to draw as much attention to external matters as to itself. Betty thus becomes a catalyst for us to explore questions about our own lives and experience. Richter has opened a conversation for spiritual and moral questions without being polemical, dogmatic, or earnest qualities habitually shunned by the contemporary art world.
