Description

By Sheena Wagstaff and Benjamin H. D. Buchloh with essays by Briony Fer, Hal Foster, Peter Geimer, Brinda Kumar, and André Rottmann

Over the course of his acclaimed 60-year career, Gerhard Richter (b. 1932) has employed both representation and abstraction as a means of reckoning with the legacy, collective memory, and national sensibility of post–WWII Germany, in both broad and very personal terms. This handsomely designed book spans the artist's rich and varied oeuvre from the early 1960s to the present, including photo paintings, portraits, large-scale abstract series, and works on glass. Essays by leading experts on the artist illuminate Richter's preoccupation with painting in relation to other modes of representation, and emphasize the ongoing importance of the medium's formal and conceptual possibilities in contemporary art.

Sheena Wagstaff is Leonard A. Lauder Chairman of the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Benjamin H. D. Buchloh is the Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Modern Art in the History of Art and Architecture department at Harvard University.
