Just over a month ago, I reported that a replacement window for one destroyed during World War II at the Cologne Cathedral was going to be displayed publicly on August 25th. That date has come an gone and the window is now open to the public. Gerhard Richter designed the window (inspired by his own 1974 painting "4096 colors") using 11,200 square pieces of coloured glass. The result is decidedly Modern within the Gothic framework of the surrounding building.
What do you think? Does the juxtaposition work or fail? Deutsche Welle has a more detailed take on the project with some quotes from Gerhard Richter.
