Gerhard Richter : a life in painting by Dietmar Elger( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and German and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gerhard Richter was born in Dresden in 1932 and lives and works in Cologne. His continuing commitment to, and exploration of, the medium of painting has made him one of the most important artists of our time. The Cage paintings, a cycle of large-scale works named after the American avant-garde composer John Cage, were displayed for the first time at the Venice Siennale in 2007. They represent the latest highlight in a career that spans more than four decades." "Leading critic Robert Storr considers the importance of the Cage paintings within Richter's practice and within the wider context of abstract art. A series of extraordinary, detailed photographs document the development of each painting, day by day, and show the artist at work on these monumental canvases, giving unique insight into his working methods." "Including illustrations of comparative works, archival photographs and studio views, Cage: 6 Paintings by Gerhard Richter is essential reading for anyone interested in the life and work of one of the world's greatest living painters."--Jacket

Gerhard Richter : paintings from private collections by Gerhard Richter( Book )

18 editions published in 2008 in 3 languages and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gerhard Richter (*1932) is certainly one of the most important artists of our time. His works are featured in all of the leading museums and collections around the world. Yet these kinds of superlatives hardly do justice to the artist's work. This publication features more than eighty works from first-rate private collections, including the artist's own, and thus provides a concise overview of a career spanning over forty years which not only reflects the history of postwar Germany, but also the medium of painting. Richter's incredibly complex work oscillates between paintings bordering on Photorealism and large, abstract compositions of captivatingly expressive color and technical perfection. Yet his work is always centered on painting itself, which is asserted in many different ways, confidently holding up its own reality for comparison to the actual world

Gerhard Richter : early work, 1951-1972( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gerhard Richter : Early Work, 1951-1972 brings together new studies of the early career of Gerhard Richter by an international group of scholars concerned with art in the Cold War. Born in Dresden in 1932, educated under the prevailing doctrine of SOcialist Realism at the Dresden Academy of Art and later retrained after his emigration to the West at the Düsseldorf Art Academy, Richter uniquely embodies the division of Germany during the Cold War. The authors approach the Cold War context from a variety of angles that include the social and political histories of a divided Germany, the conflicted development of Soviet Socialist Realism in the German Democratic Republic (GDR), a Cold War visuality integrating pre- and post-resettlement works, and the archival dimension of Richter's output in relation to his Atlas. The essays offer a new view of Richter's early work by taking a closer look at his formation in the GDR in the 1950s and at his first works in the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) in the 1960s, alongside the artist's personal involvement in the representation of his work in archives, exhibitions, and catalogues from the early years in Dresden up to the present day. Although Gerhard Richter counts as perhaps the best known and most widely exhibited contemporary artist form Germany, his reception has mostly neglected the artist's formation in Dresden due to the Cold War division of Germany and the artist's own withholding of his early work from the public. All of the authors assembled here bring the gradual and incomplete resurrection of the record to bear on selected works--the murals from the 1950s, the photo-paintings and exhibitions of the 1960s, or the collaborations during these periods--and on selected practices, such as the calculated display of the artist's sources as a work of art in Atlas, or the establishment of the Gerhard Richter Archive in Dresden in 2007/ The essays in this volume evolved from papers delivered at a symposium held at the Getty Center in conjunction with the exhibition From Caspar David Friedrich to Gerhard Richter: German Paintings from Dresden at the J. Paul Getty Museum

September : a history painting by Gerhard Richter by Robert Storr( Book )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gerhard Richter is one of the most influential artists of modern times. His painting 'September' is the response to the bombing of the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001, made some four years after the event. Eminent American critic and curator Robert Storr, who has had a long working relationship with Richter, explores both the painting and the event itself, as filtered through an eyewitness account of what happened in New York that day. Through description, comparative illustrations, and references to precedents in modern art, literature, and warfare, Storr analyzes the image's meaning and how it adds to a current in Richter's career that questions evocations of traumatic and controversial moments in history"--Page 4 of cover

Nach einer kurzen Einführung in das frühe Werk Gerhard Richters gibt die Publikation einen nahezu vollständigen Überblick über sein Schaffen von 1993 bis 1996. Neben überwiegend abstrakten Arbeiten ist ein Zyklus von acht Bildern kleineren Formats von intimem, privatem Charakter entstanden. Autobiografische Elemente hat Gerhard Richter schon in früheren Jahren verwendet, doch treten sie verstärkt in dieser Folge von Motiven auf, die, verschleiert oder durch Spachtelhiebe "gefährdet", in madonnenhafter Attitüde seine junge Frau Sabine mit Kind zeigen. Der vom Künstler selbst gestaltete Band wird mit ganzseitigen farbigen Abbildungen zu einem außergewöhnlichen Zeugnis zeitgenössischer Kunst. 0
