Gursky's political photo art
It's not a historical photo, but a work of art. German photographer Andreas Gursky digitally installed the heads of four German chancellors in front of a painting by Barnett Newman. The result, created in 2011, is called "Rückblick" (Retrospect). Current German Chancellor Angela Merkel is second from right. The others, from the left, are Gerhard Schröder, Helmut Schmidt and Helmut Kohl.
