Another artist shown in the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art was Gerhard Richter and his photorealistic painting series 48 Portraits:b/w portrait heads of 48 dead white male European and American intellectuals (scientists, writers, composers, philosophers, but no artists) derived from pictures in an encyclopedia (information from this page). Although the pictures are originally paintings, they were reprinted on photographic paper; I like it when something is different to what you first assume. Also, when I first entered the room I never thought of whom was actually portrayed, because of how they are all lined up in the same format and style, very anonymous- which is the opposite of how you know the personas presented (names like Albert Einstein, Stravinsky and Norwegian writer Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson!).
Kristin meets Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson:) Some more work from Richter's website; love the blurry, ghostlike effect!
