More than 50 years ago, Gerhard Richter began mounting parts of his extensive collection of pictorial material on cardboard, hoping to create order and clarity among his archive of photos, newspaper clippings, sketches, drawings, construction plans, room design, collages, overpainted photographs and drafts of paintings. Richter eschewed chronology--his real interest was in iconographical and typological order. A work in progress, this 'Atlas' soon developed into an independent Gesamtkunstwerk mirroring biographical and historical facts--an artistic cosmos of great autonomy, a source of all of his thought and creation.The artist's book has become an important genre for Richter, and in this large-format, four-volume edition, he has not only reproduced 'Atlas,' but rearranged it. His decision to show all of his plates at a scale of 1:2 makes the monumental archive--with more than 5,000 images--visible in all its details for the first time. Richter himself has redefined the color of his plates, piece by piece, through several correction phases, rendering this epic work accessible in a stunning new publication.Gerhard Richter (born 1932) was born in Dresden, in East Germany. He migrated to West Germany in 1961 and held his first solo exhibition in 1963. Richter's amazingly prolific multimedia output--from photo-paintings, to drawings, to photographs, to landscapes, to portraits, to sculptures--has been exhibited internationally for the last five decades. The artist lives and works in Cologne, Germany. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 196927

Über diesen Titel

Reseña del editor:

This monumental publication maps the ideas, processes, life and times of one of the most important painters of our time. Conceived and closely edited by Gerhard Richter himself, Atlas cuts straight to the heart of the artist’s thinking, collecting more than 5,000 photographs, drawings and sketches that he has compiled or created since the moment of his creative breakthrough in 1962. Year by year, the images closely parallel the subjects of Richter’s paintings, revealing the orderly but open-ended analysis that has been so central to his art. From pictures of family and friends to images from the mass media, Richter’s photographs – sometimes found, sometimes original – have provided the basis for many of his paintings, often re-emerging in a luminous, monochromatic palette, and falling ambiguously between documentary and historical painting. Offering invaluable insight into Richter’s working process, this magnificent new edition has been newly conceptualized by the artist. An accompanying commentary volume by Helmut Friedel will be published in 2016.
