Startling colours, soft greys, undulating lines and large canvases are the hallmark of Gerhard Richter's abstract period. Like all of Richter's painting, these works defy categorisation, reflecting the artist's own journey toward understanding the world around him, a journey he invites his fans to share with him. To mark the acquisition of three of his seminal works of this period - Red, Yellow and Blue - are presented here in luxurious fold-out spreads and are given particular attention this new book explores all Richter's abstract paintings from this period. An illustrated essay by Robert Storr, perhaps the world's foremost authority on Richter, provides illuminating background to the artist's rich and complex oeuvre. Art critic Helmut Friedel interviews the artist and offers his own perspective on Richter's converging interests in painting and photography.
