Notes:
[1] The first public exhibition of "Betty" was at Anthony d'Offay Gallery on April 22, 1991 ["Gerhard Richter: Mirrors." London: Anthony d'Offay Gallery, 1991, cat. no. 1]. A catalogue for the exhibition and a label on the back of the canvas support this provenance ["Gerhard Richter". London: Tate Gallery, 1991, cat. no. 49]. Furthermore, the bill of sale from Anthony d'Offay Gallery dated March 27, 1992 states that the gallery acquired the painting from the artist [SLAM document files].
