GERHARD RICHTER: ABSTRACT PAINTINGS AND DRAWINGS with essays by Dieter Schwarz and Benjamin Buchloh
Marian Goodman Gallery, 2016, First edition, 122 pp., 9 1/2" X 12", Hardcover
Published for the 2016 exhibition at Marian Goodman Gallery in New York, this catalogue features abstract works produced between 2014 and 2015. These works mark the artist's return to painting after a four-year pause. Enriched with two essays, the first by Dieter Schwarz—Beginning Again: New Abstract Paintings by Gerhard Richter—and the second by Benjamin Buchloh—Gerhard Richter: Drawing the Conditions of Drawing—this book provides precious tools for understanding Richter's relationship to traditional media, his influenced, and his own innovations.
