In 1986, Richter won a commission from insurance company Victoria-Versicherung for two large paintings. Richter wanted to challenge himself not just in concept and design but also in execution, deciding to paint each piece on a single canvas measuring six meters high and four wide. Previously he had painted similarly sized pieces in sections and later admitted that the task was ia little megalomaniacal.iRichter named the paintings iVictoria Ii and iVictoria II,i after the company, which commissioned them. These pieces continued his exploration of abstract painting, which characterized his work in the 1980s.This is an offset lithograph of iVictoria IIi which has a facsimile signature and is not numbered. Listed in catalogue raisonne Butin/Gronert P. 283.
