GERHARD RICHTER PORTRAITS. Painting Appearances

GERHARD RICHTER (1932-)

The catalogue explores a vital aspects of Gerhard Richter's art in unprecedented detail, and highlights include the important early black-and-white paintings made from magazine photographs, portraits based on private snapshots and a new portrait never previously shown.

During the course of a career that now spans more than fifty years, Gerhard Richter (b.1932) has established a reputation as one of the world's leading contemporary artists. For some, quite simply he is the greatest living painter - a complex figure whose work encompasses figurative paintings based on photographs as well as brightly coloured abstracts with no apparent subject.

Gerhard Richter Portraits: Painting Appearances maps out Richter's portraiture in sections that consider the artist's private images - focusing on his use of personal photographs - and personal history, in which Richter's preoccupation with his family and his own image take centre stage. Author and curator Paul Moorhouse examines those portraits that are drawn from a range of media-derived sources, and goes on to investigate the artist's curiosity in art history, looking in particular at portrayals of Richter's associations within the art world.

With over 100 full-colour illustrations from international, public and private collections, this book offers a major advance in the understanding and appreciation of the artist's work. By examining a comprehensive range of portraits and scrutinising the sophisticated ways in which Richter has challenged and extended the genre of portraiture, the startling range of the artist's source material is revealed
