No genre has fascinated Gerhard Richter so consistently throughout his career as that of landscape. Ever since his softly overpainted "Views of Corsica "series of 1968-69, the artist has revisited and reprised its possibilities, creating black-and-white townscapes based on newspaper picture and amateur photographs, mountain and park scenes with heavy impasto, illusionistic seascapes in subtly gradated tones and paintings worked with abstract overpainting. Frequently these paintings interrupt or quietly sabotage the transcendent horizon of the Romantic landscape, but the image presented is not exactly ironized as in other paintings of Richter's. "I felt like painting something beautiful" was the artist's response, when asked about the preponderance of landscapes in his works around 1970. Fifteen years later, he further elaborated that "my landscapes are not only beautiful or nostalgic, with a Romantic or classical suggestion of lost Paradises, but above all 'untruthful'... by untruthful I mean the glorifying way we look at Nature--Nature, which in all its forms is against us, because it knows no meaning, no pity, no sympathy..." Richter's approaches to landscape are various indeed, yet uniquely and recognizably his. The first edition of "Gerhard Richter: Landscapes "was published in 1998; it quickly sold out, was reprinted in 2002 and rapidly went out of print again. This new edition is the first to expand on the 1998, and brings us up to date with Richter's enduring fondness for this subject.Gerhard Richter was born in Dresden in 1932, and rose to prominence in the early 1960s as a member of the Capitalist Realism movement alongside Sigmar Polke and others. His first solo show was in 1964 at Galerie Schmela in Dusseldorf. Today he is ranked among the world's greatest painters.

Product Description:

Gerhard Richter (*1932 in Dresden) has always dealt with the landscape. No other motif has fascinated him as much or kept him so occupied over the years: black-and-white landscapes based on images from magazines and amateur photos; views of mountains and parks painted in thick impasto; softly hued, transparent, illusionist lake scenes. Ever since the subtle Corsica paintings of 1968/69, landscapes have become an established, distinct group of works within the artist’s oeuvre. Richter captures reality in a painterly way, such that landscape and abstraction manifest not as opposites but as related concepts. Containing outstanding illustrations and insightful texts, this volume examines Richter’s landscapes from the early sixties to the present. (German edition ISBN 978-3-7757-2638-2)

Book Description Hatje Cantz Verlag Gmbh Apr 2011, 2011. Buch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Gerhard Richter (geb. 1932 in Dresden) hat sich immer schon mit der Landschaft auseinandergesetzt. Kein anderes Motiv hat ihn ähnlich fasziniert und über die Jahre beschäftigt: Schwarz-weiße Landschaften, nach Zeitschriftenreproduktionen und Amateurfotos, pastos gemalte Gebirgsansichten und Parkstücke, illusionistische Seestücke von subtiler Farbigkeit und Transparenz. Seit den weich vermalten Korsika-Ansichten von 1968/69 haben sich die Landschaften als eigene Werkgruppe in Richters Oeuvre etabliert. Gerhard Richter erfasst in seinen Bildern auf malerische Weise Wirklichkeit, in denen Landschaft und Abstraktion nicht als Gegensätze, sondern als verwandte Konzepte erscheinen. Der vorliegende Band erschließt mit hervorragenden Abbildungen und aufschlussreichen Texten Richters Landschaftsmalerei von den frühen 1960er-Jahren bis heute. 176 pp. Englisch.
