The Art Institute of Chicago received support for the exhibition Gerhard Richter: 40 Years of Painting on view at the Art Institute 22 June - 15 September 2002. The exhibition is the most comprehensive retrospective of this master’s work to be presented in North America since the Art Gallery of Toronto presented a mid-career traveling show in 1988.
In addition to the exhibition that was organized by the Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute supplemented the checklist with works from its own impressive collection of Richter, many of which were a gift from the Lannan collection to the Art Institute in 1997.
