"Looking at these overpainted little snapshot-sized paintings (..) I thought: they are so beautiful. (..) Anyway, I was delighted with the colors of the overpainting and the painting underneath, and as I continued to look, I became wistful, sad, amused, confused, amazed, and at times a sense of grievous loss came over me. A few times I laughed out loud. I was fascinated the whole time."
Siri Hustvedt, Wahrheit und Richtigkeit, quoted from: Markus Heinzelmann (ed.) Gerhard Richter. Übermalte Fotografien, Ostfildern 2008, pp. 73-74.
