Gerhard Richter, ‘Two Sculptures for a Room by Palermo’ (1971)

Two plaster heads, painted with gray oil paint, one a self-portrait of Richter, the other a portrait of the German artist Blinky Palermo. The heads face each other across the room, with eyes closed as if each artist is actually looking inward.
