Our first film in the "You've Been Served" 2016 Series is the 2011 documentary, Gerhard Richter Painting, which follows the German visual artist as he tries to create new work and discusses his career.

Richter, a renowned German visual artists and an octogenarian, has emerged as one of the staunch opponents of the revisions in the German Cultural Heritage Law, being quoted as threatening to withdraw his art from German museums if the law would impose restrictions on exporting artworks older than 50 years from Germany. Richter's own body of works, with some created more than five decades ago, would have been affected by the revisions.

After the film, Nicolas O’Donnell, a partner in the Litigation Department of Sullivan & Worcester LLP , will discuss the controversy and the revisions ultimately adopted in the 2015-2016 German cultural law on patrimony. Mr. O’Donnell is the editor of the Art Law Report, a widely acclaimed art law blog, and in his practice he frequently represents clients with art related needs.
