Item description for Daniel Richter: Die Palette 1995-2007 by Christoph Heinrich...
Daniel Richter, a former graphic designer of punk-rock album covers, is a major star of the German contemporary art scene. A significant influence since the 1990s -- often mentioned in the same breath as Neo Rauch and Peter Doig -- Richter has enjoyed great success since developing his expressive style of figurative painting. His large-format canvases combine elements from the mass media, pop culture and art history to create unconventional narrative scenes that can be both terrifying and beautiful. This lavishly illustrated book represents the first comprehensive survey of Richter's uvre, featuring the artist's work from all phases of his career.

Amazing reproductions !! Jun 20, 2008
One of the very few books on Daniel Richter with good reproductions and covers a substantial part of his illustrious career.Definitely does justice to one of the great painters of this decade !! Wish they had also included more interviews with Richter and some of his rarely seen drawings.
A MUST HAVE artbook!! May 26, 2008
I felt in love with this book at first sight. The hardcover its on metalic gold color. When you get to open it you know that you made one of the best buys if you like contemporary painting. Every single page is amazing. Almost the whole book has full-page image. The paper quality is (like couché) great. I haven's seen a Richter's face to face so I can't say anything about the color (perhaps it has a little more contrast than the real ones, but it doesn's bother me at all). The print quality is excellent and allows you to see plenty of details. In the first pages you can watch Richter working at the studio with huge canvases around him. In the last pages you can get to see like a hundred of sketches most of them painted with oil on canvas or paper. This book and the Matthias Weischer's one I think are both A MUST HAVE ARTBOOKS.
