OP GERHARD RICHTER. Tate Gallery, London, 1991. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Washington Press, Seattle. 144 pp. with 133 ills. (52 col., one foldout). 30 x 24 cm. LC 92-155085 ISBN 1854370847 In English; 35 brief texts by the artist also in German.
Features full-page reproductions of 60 paintings by major German artist Richter (b. 1932), who has developed a deliberately heterogeneous repertory of styles and images over the past 30 years, his oeuvre ranging from overpainted photographs of banal scenes to compositions embodying geometric, gestural, monochromatic and other modes of abstraction. Three critical essays evaluating the complex aesthetic principles central to Richter's approach, the traditions of painting his works subversively address, and the relevance of postwar German history to his themes are supplemented with an anthology of writings by the artist (many published in English for the first time) and his short commentaries on numerous individual pieces featured in the show.
