Fine Art America is a company comparable to RedBuble Pty Ltd that was founded in 2006 as a global online marketplace for print-on-demand products. In 2007, Broihier launched Fine Art America, also an ecommerce marketplace. Artists upload digital images of their artwork to fineartamerica.com and offer them for sale as frame prints, canvas prints, greeting cards and more. Once a purchase is made, Fine Art America outsources the printing, framing, matting, stretching, packaging, shipping and insuring.
FineArtAmerica.com sells not only in-the-style-of, but also merchandised 2 patterns (details of a painting) that are offered as ‘by Gerhard Richter’, i.e. both 2 Throw pillows and 2 Tote bags. That brings one to the question whether Gerhard Richter or his team ‘uploaded digital images of artworks to fineartamerica.com’ or that e.g. Fine Art America got a license to publish and produce this product.

RedBuble Pty Ltd was founded in 2006 as a global online marketplace for print-on-demand products. It sells not only in-the-style-of, but also merchandised Gerhard Richter products. See more at RedBubble Gerhard Richter products. For some reason the Throw pillows number 2 and number 3 lack a tag reference related to Gerhard Richter’s name or consent. Yet on the website these are the sole pillows that show merely his name as the maker.

Texte zur Kunst: “Richter hat sich in seiner Edition für Texte zur Kunst der Collagentechnik bedient, so als wolle er den Eindruck einer geschlossenen Bildoberfläche unterlaufen, indem er bemalte Farbbahnen zerschnitt und aneinanderklebte. Da es sich bei dieser Arbeit um eine Variante über die Deutschlandfahne handelt – Richters Entwurf für den Berliner Bundestag -, liegt eine bestimmte Interpretationsebene nahe: Das Symbol für die Idee nationaler Einheit wird aufgebrochen und dadurch quasi seiner Essenz beraubt. Dieser Auflösungsprozess wird durch das Moment der Serialisierung wie durch leichte Farbabweichungen unterstrichen: „Schwarz”, „Rot” und „Gold” werden in jeweils vier Abstufungen kombiniert und sind demnach nur annäherungsweise repräsentiert. So variiert etwa das „Gold” zwischen Ocker und Senffarben”.

Richter produced NOVEMBER, a series of 54 works in ink. These works were created using a variety of ways to manipulate the consistency of ink and its flow on highly absorbent paper. The ink permeated through the sheets creating two related images, one on the front and one on the back of each of the 27 sheets used. In some cases Richter also applied lacquer or pencil.
Richter had a complete set of facsimiles made, so both sides of the 27 sheets could be viewed at the same time. However, the sequence of mirrored pairs of images is disrupted, as some of the images have been rotated by 180 degrees. The book displays the images of the pairs, one on the front and one on the back of each page and ends with an overview of all 54 works.

In the artist’s book November Richter not only made use of sheets with a mirror image of the motif on the reverse; in some cases the ink that had soaked through layers of sheets created what looked like visual echoes. His manipulation of the given sequence was distinctly restrained: for instance, November 2nd (recto) is placed upside down, disturbing the regularity of the mirror-image idea. In addition to this, the obscuring over-painting of this same sheet and of November 3rd draws attention to the differences between the two, rather than to any repetition. In the case of the pairs of sheets dated November 4th and 5th, the verso images are again rotated by 180º; it also appears that the sequence of front and back has been reversed in the case of the latter. The given reflections are thus just the point of departure for an interlocking web of playfulness, which in turn creates simultaneity from a temporal and material sequence. In the same way that original and facsimile per sheet and page are barely distinguishable, any distinctive qualities in the different ink markings are all but impossible to discern – with the initial disposition on one side and copy, duplicate and replica on the other. It has become a work in itself.
