The Wick List

Viewing Gerhard Richter’s ode to the Alps

As the ski season kicks off in earnest, we’re taking a trip to the Alps with this week’s Wick List, bringing you the shows to catch when you hit the slopes. First up is German artist Gerhard Richter’s homage to the Engadin valley in Switzerland, where he has holidayed for over 25 years.

More than 70 works, spread across three sites – Nietzsche-Haus in Sils Maria, and the Segantini Museum and Hauser & Wirth in St Moritz – celebrate the familiarity and alienness of its snowy peaks, waterfalls and lakes. Among them are paintings, drawings, and over-painted photographs, in which he accentuates the images with delicate lines, stains and splatters of colour, with astonishing results. His dazzling works are a Technicolor tribute to scenery with an undeniable pull.
