Gerhard Richter is one of the most influential painters working today. Active since the early 1960s, his work in many mediums has garnered serious attention as well as international accolades.

Gerhard Richter (*1932) is an exceptional personality - not because his pictures are world famous, but because he has demonstrated a new approach to painting. His art masterfully moves between abstraction and representation, sensuousness and denial - ambiv alent attitudes which he demonstrated even in his early work. Gerhard Richter's oeuvre overcomes the division between abstract and representational art. His pictures neither cultivate a modest interplay of colours and forms nor do they deliver an intact p icture of reality. Richter is a sceptical artist who questions the reality of his art even when the prime subject of his paintings is the tangible. This applies in particular to his door, curtain and window pictures of the 1960s, which form the central foc us of this volume. They stage a playful examination of the illusory nature of art, which always questions what painting shows or conceals. This lavishly appointed volume is published to mark the artist's 85th birthday.00Exhibition: Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany (15.06-01.10.2017) / Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst, Gent, Belgium (21.10.2017-18.02.2018).

Located somewhere between Pop Art and Realism, Gerhard Richter's abstract works are the subject of this unique book that brings together 80 works from collections worldwide. Trained in the 1950s as a realistic painter, by the mid-1970s Gerhard Richter began to evolve into a more abstract artist. His large, colorful paintings from that time exposed the process of painting as much as its creative aims. Focusing solely on Richter's abstract work, this book features 80 works on canvas that represent the full range of the artist's experiments away from representational painting. It includes his early works, which called painting itself into question and incorporated personal documents and newspaper images. Also examined here are Richter's series of gray paintings from the 1970s--a reaffirmation of artistic purity; his "Inpainting" series, which made the application of paint and brushstrokes themselves the subject; his color chart paintings, which both neutralize and glorify painting's most emotionally charged element: color. Also included are his later works in which he applied paint with a brush, scraper, and palette knife. Taken as a whole, these brilliant works reveal an artist consistently in dialogue with his work, and with the overarching artistic trends of the time.

On the occasion of Gerhard Richter's 85th birthday, this exhibition catalogue presents 26 abstract pictures all produced in 2016.Vibrant colours and differentiated, complex compositions characterise the new pictures, most of which are painted on canvas in a wide variety of formats.The artist works on the pictures, built up on multiple layers of oil paint, with brush, spatula, scraper, and knife; his wealth of experience -- also in incorporating chance into the process for creation -- leads to highly detailed and extremely complex compositions.Scepticism concerning the representability of reality and the question of the importance of the painted image are at the core of Richter's work.Published on the occasion of the exhibition at Museum Ludwig, Cologne, 9 February -- 1 May 2017.
