Gerhard Richter's monumental 1988 Abstraktes Bild work is up for auction at Christie's 20th Century Evening Sale with a presale estimate of $25-35 million. ⁠

Part of his heralded 'Abstraktes Bild' series, this work is an extraordinary example of Richter's conceptual approach to painting—using his understanding of abstraction to meld sumptuous colour with an energy, and a spirit of inevitability, which ensures each work in the series is as unique as the last.⁠⁠

The works in this highly-acclaimed series account for 17 of his top 20 results at auction.
