Gerhard Richter is one of the most influential painters working today. Beginning in the 1960s, his work in many mediums has garnered serious attention and international accolades. His paintings - subtly modulated photo-based works, monochrome abstractions, and heavily painted, highly coloured, gestural canvases - are the subject of this lavishly illustrated monography by Robert Storr, a Senior Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. The book accompanies the first comprehensive exhibition of the work of the German artist to be presented in New York. This important exhibition, organized by The Museum of Modern Art, will be seen there from 21 February to 21 May 2002, and subsequently will travel to the Art Institute of Chicago, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, Washington DC, and the High Museum, Atlanta.
