'Disquieted, disintegrating, drained of colour, smart disquisitions on beauty and meaning: Richter's landscapes are as far from an instinctive response to nature as is possible within the genre' - Financial Times
A richly illustrated book exploring the theme of landscape in Richter's oeuvre
Gerhard Richter is one of the most famous painters of our time, worldwide. His fascinating visual spheres are characterized by a unique originality and quality, in which the abstract and the figural intertwine and permeate each other. This extensive volume of pictures concentrates entirely upon the theme of landscape in Richter's oeuvre.
Through this genre, to which Richter has remained loyal for more than sixty years, it is possible to see more than a development in the artist's painting style. There is also a perceptible, genuine independence in many of the works, which makes him one of the most remarkable artists of our day. This book adds to the understanding of the significance and pictorial essence of Richter's art, opening up current insights into the theme of nature and landscape in the twenty-first century.
