Gerhard Richter and Sigmar Polke

German artists Gerhard Richter and Sigmar Polke have created stained glass windows for churches in Cologne and Zurich.

“The literally paradoxical, if not quite heretical, results of these two projects pose a question of whether, in Christian Europe today, art on celebrated artists’ terms has risen to equality with religion or if religion has sunk to the level of mere art,” -Peter Schjeldahl
