Oil Sketch No. 432/11, 1977 is a small painting by Gerhard Richter that was used as the basis for Abstract Painting No. 439. He has said, ‘I do not paint the oil sketches with the intention of using them for the big smooth pictures, but I subsequently use some of the sketches as patterns for big pictures’. Richter also explained that his oil sketches look like they are painted faster than the big paintings, but they often take longer as he goes back to make changes from time to time.
