T.J. Clark on Gerhard Richter.  Clark's well known dislike of Duchamp. No discussion of Warhol.
Clark and Richter look downwards; Warhol's gaze more horizontal (or more ambiguous). He's less educated and more observant than either of them. Questions regarding sympathy are more complex.

  
Gerhard Richter, Confrontation 2, and 3, both 1988
Warhol, Electric Chair, 1967-68
Warhol, Double Elvis, 1964
