Richter created Abstract Painting No. 439 by photographing one of his own pieces (Oil Sketch No. 432/11), and projecting the image onto a large canvas, which he traced in charcoal. He completed the larger image with conventional oil paint. To achieve glossy finish similar to a photograph he worked the surface of the painting with brushes and sandpaper.
