***SPECIAL PRICE down from $34.99 while stocks last*** This book explores Gerhard Richter's mesmerizing abstract paintings from a particularly fertile period of one of the most important living artists. Startling colours, soft greys, undulating lines and large canvases are the hallmark of Richter's abstract period. Like all of Richter's painting, these works defy categorization, reflecting the artist's own journey towards understanding the world around him, a journey he invites his viewers to share with him. Three of his seminal works of this period: Red, Yellow, and Blue, are given particular attention and are presented here in luxurious foldout spreads. An illustrated essay by Robert Storr, perhaps the foremost authority on Richter, provides illuminating background to the artist's rich and complex oeuvre. Art critic Helmut Friedel interviews the artist and offers his own perspective on Richter's converging interests in painting and photography. AUTHORS: Helmut Friedel is the director of the Lenbachhaus in Munich. He has published numerous books on art. Robert Storr is a professor at New York University and the author of a comprehensive monograph on Gerhard Richter. 114 colour illustrations
