Gerhard Richter : forty years of painting by Robert Storr ( Book )
19 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and German and held by 1,238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Gerhard Richter is one of the most influential painters working today. Since the early 1960s, his work has received much attention and many international accolades. Richter's diverse body of work calls into question such widely held assumptions as the importance of stylistic consistency, individual artistic sensibility, spontaneous creativity, and the impact of technology and media imagery to traditional studio methods and formats. Unlike many artists today, he has explored these issues mainly through the medium of painting, challenging it to meet the demands posed by new forms of conceptual art. His varied output ranges from austere photo-based figurative realism of the early 1960s to brightly colored gestural abstractions of the early 1980s and encompasses such startling works as his brilliant cycle of black-and-white paintings of the Baader-Meinhof group, thought-provoking monochrome abstractions and banal Pop images, delicate landscapes and intimate portraits. As an artist, Richter has assumed a critical distance from vanguardists and conservatives alike regarding what painting should be; and the result has been a vital renewal of painting itself." "This book accompanies the first comprehensive exhibition of the seventy-year-old German artist's paintings ever to appear in New York and includes beautiful color plates and duotones of some two hundred canvases in a broad representation of his forty years of painting. In addition, this volume contains a substantial recent interview with Richter, a chronology, selected bibliography, and comprehensive exhibition history. The retrospective this book accompanies was organized by Robert Storr, Senior Curator of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. After its showing in New York, this extraordinary exhibition will be seen in Chicago, San Francisco, and Washington, D. C."--BOOK JACKET

Born in 1932 in Dresden, Gerhard Richter is considered one of the world's greatest living painters and now nearly 80 years old, agreed to talk about his work, as a small film crew documents his creative process. Blunt, provocative, unashamedly curmudgeonly, and iconoclastic (but never cynical), the artist says he's 'interested in things he doesn't understand,' that 'painting is a secretive business,' and that 'each painting is an assertion that tolerates no company

September : a history painting by Gerhard Richter by Robert Storr ( Book )
4 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Gerhard Richter is one of the most influential artists of modern times. His painting 'September' is the response to the bombing of the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001, made some four years after the event. Eminent American critic and curator Robert Storr, who has had a long working relationship with Richter, explores both the painting and the event itself, as filtered through an eyewitness account of what happened in New York that day. Through description, comparative illustrations, and references to precedents in modern art, literature, and warfare, Storr analyzes the image's meaning and how it adds to a current in Richter's career that questions evocations of traumatic and controversial moments in history"--P.

Gerhard Richter by Gertrud Koch ( Book )
9 editions published in 1995 in 4 languages and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The huge Richter retrospective that closed in 1994 in Madrid, after showing in Paris, Bonn, and Stockholm, has only confirmed the key position of the artist among his contemporaries. This book forgoes the accepted avenues through art history, genre theory, and materials, seeking a new approach to the questions that continue to haunt Richter's work. By reconsidering the relations between photography and painting, by analyzing the historical, social, and political elements brought into certain works, as well as the relations between romantic "nature philosophy" and Richter's landscapes, the volume demonstrates how the development of the pictorial material leads to a more open notion of the "image". Richter's oeuvre is clearly linked to certain traditional categories of painting, but the image as he defines it most often eludes those categories. It is this new definition that must be analyzed
