Germany's most celebrated modern painter turned 80 this year with a bang – retrospectives mushroomed all over the country, including a major show at the Neue Nationalgalerie. Around 140 paintings and five sculptures from all periods of the artist's extensive oeuvre, carefully selected together with the artist himself, offer visitors a profound insight into his diverse body of work. The Mies van der Rohe building is put to good use – the outside edge of the exhibition displays a dazzling array of Richter's small colorblock paintings, a long bright line facing out through the museum's glass walls.
