Richter has been hailed as an artist for contributing to the revival of popular interest in painting. His 2005 exhibition declared his place as a momentous artist amongst those of the 20th century. Richter has been the recipient of numerous distinguished awards: the Staatspreis of the State Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf, in 2000; the Wexner Prize, 1998; the Praemium Imperiale, Japan, 1997; the Golden Lion of the 47th Biennale, Venice, 1997; the Wolf Prize in Israel; the Kaiserring Prize der Stadt Goslar, Mönchehaus-Museum für Moderne Kunst, Goslar, Germany, 1988; the Oskar Kokoschka Prize, Vienna, 1985; the Arnold Bode Prize, Kassel, 1981; and the Junger Western Art Prize, Germany, 1961. Indeed, his popularity has been such that Cologne made him an honorary citizen in 2007.
