Have you tried the contact page on his website?

If he had died a hundred years ago or more, you could try one of the many Chinese Replica Painting companies (as featured in the NYTimes). But given that he's still alive, that's probably not an option.

You probably can't, sorry. (And I doubt you'll get much response trying to contact Gerhard Richter through that website. Unless some museum decided to use that particular image on a poster for a Richter show--and as far as I can tell, they haven't--a print wouldn't exist.

It's highly unlikely, but if that painting was shown at a major museum it could possibly have been used in a poster at that time. I know from experience that museum stores are sometimes able to dig up old posters from shows, sometimes even several years past. If there was ever a show at MOMA or the Guggenheim for instance, you could see if they had a poster or books with high-quality prints you could frame.

do you see how that website lists the catalogue rainsone? Find that book and you'll likely find who owns it the painting. If it's a public institution, perhaps their shop has printed a poster. If it's a private collection or still owned by the artist, sorry, out of luck.
