Description
Identified by London's Guardian newspaper as the "Picasso of the 21st century," German painter Gerhard Richter is the world's highest-paid artist, yet he remains one of the most enigmatic, with a conceptual oeuvre that jumps styles from photorealism to large, abstract compositions. Curator Robert Storr explains, "He's not playing hard to get, he's doing something that is hard to get.'' This catalog, with 105 color plates and 14 black and white photos, presents more than 80 works that span Richter's five-decade career, from Neuschwanstein Castle (1963) to 25 Colors (2007), placing wildly disparate works side by side and revealing that, whatever the style, Richter's subject is always perception and painting itself.

"Seeing Gerhard's abstraction and photorealism together, you realize that this dual body of work is the perfect expression of what it means to paint today—and what a contemporary master might be."—Martha Schwendener
