I just realized that everyone might not be aware of the connection between artist Gerhard Richter, mentioned in the previous post, and the ever-popular Spade apartment. Richter is one of many acclaimed artists represented in the Spades' collection. Shown above, in the red den, is a print of Betty. The original photo-realistic oil painting done of Richter's daughter Betty in 1988 belongs to the Saint Louis Art Museum.

By the way, in Atlanta the High Museum of Art owns another of Richter's "photo paintings," Lesende Reader.
