Due date: April 2017 (postponed). Note: this title was originally announced as a four-volume set to be distributed in the U.S.A. in fall 2015 by University of Chicago Press under ISBN 978-0-9930103-3-0. Please note that the publication was later postponed, expanded to six volumes and assigned a new ISBN (as documented here), with North American distribution re-assigned to D.A.P.; libraries that had ordered the originally announced title from a vendor other than Worldwide may wish to check on the status of those orders. Publisher's description: This extraordinary six-volume slipcased production offers a comprehensive account of a largely unexplored (though immensely popular) aspect of the practice of Gerhard Richter: the Overpainted Photographs series, which he began creating in the mid-1980s and still engages with today. These works begin with informal photographs -- often snapshots of the artist's personal life -- which are subsequently obscured under layers of paint. Richter's process often transforms their visual meaning entirely, creating a fascinating and dreamlike body of work. The first volume contains essays including newly commissioned texts on the Overpainted Photographs by Robert Storr, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Paul Moorhouse, Stefan Gronert, Christine Mehring and Dorothee Brill alongside important reprinted texts on the subject, including essays by Siri Husvedt, Uwe M. Schneede and Botho Strauss.
