INFO

Gerhard RichterŸ??s paintings combine photorealism and abstraction in a manner that is completely unique to the German artist. A master of texture, Richter has experimented with different techniques of paint application throughout his career. His hallmark is the illusion of motion blur in his paintings, which are referenced from photographs he himself has taken, obscuring his subjects with gentle brushstrokes or the scrape of a squeegee, softening the edges of his figures to appear as though they had been captured by an unfocused lens. This publication concentrates on the theme of landscape in RichterŸ??s work, a genre to which he has remained faithful for over 60 years, capturing environments from seascapes to countryside. With a selection of RichterŸ??s paintings, some of which are previously unreproduced, this volume provides both a history of RichterŸ??s development as an artist and valuable insight into the subject of nature in contemporary art.p>?˜
