Turn About Being Fair Play ...

... it is worth noting that one of the formative experiences that influenced Gerhard Richter's painting for a very long time was being a little German boy getting bombed by the Allies.  Including, it should be said here, my sainted father piloting The Upstairs Maid.

This would be one of many topic-appropriate Richter paintings ...

Kind of fun to look at the similarities between this painting and the Raymond one in the previous post.  Also, if you ever get a chance to see the movie "Painting: Gerhard Richter" I would urge you to do so.  Not as good as "Jiro Dreams of Sushi", but still one of the better documentaries of 2012.
