Item description for Gerhard Richter: Landscapes by Gerhard Richter...
This volume presents landscapes by Gerhard Richter spanning 35 years: outstanding, large-format reproductions and two major essays elucidate the artist's working methods and his philosophy--at the same time demonstrating that Richter's landscapes and abstract works, far from being artistic opposites, are closely related aspects of the painter's unique appropriation of reality.

Lovely book - false advertising! Jan 9, 2005
I really like this book. BUT... this is NOT the book that you see when you click on the "See Inside The Book" option above. This book is 44 pages long, and is the catalogue from a gallery show in NY. The book they show in "Look Inside..." is a translation of a german book of 129 pages published by Hatje Cantz. This book has only 9 Richter plates (and a couple of Caspar David Friedrich plates) while the german one has at least twenty, and there maybe a second page of plates listed that isn't accessible through this site. Now I really like small gallery publications; the essays are different (but maybe no less obfuscating in their tangential onanism) and the focus is narrower, and I don't want to give the impression that I am disappointed in this book - it's just not the book that I thought I was ordering. Therefore, 4 not 5 stars.
