Description

Drawings are rarely present in exhibitions and can sometimes not endure the erosive effects of daylight. The book, however, is the natural ally of drawings; within their pages they are protected and widely available.

This unique publication, which features no text, has been designed and perfected through numerous revisions by Gerhard Richter himself. It presents 92 thus far unknown, mostly abstract colour pencil drawings but also crayon and chalk drawings, mediums Richter used for the very first time. All are reproduced in their original size and were produced between 2017 and 2020.

Gerhard Richter born in Dresden in 1931 left the former GDR in 1961 to study in Düsseldorf, later living and working in Cologne. His practice has redefined the medium of painting, combining a rigorous conceptual approach with a sumptuous yet elusive beauty. His mastery of genres spans landscapes, portraiture, still life and abstraction.
