Gerhard Richter’s catalogue raisonné lists more than 3,000 paintings and sculptures. Over the course of six decades, a stylistically diverse and complex oeuvre was created that attests to Richter’s status as the most important living artist. The scholarly catalogue raisonné, comprising six volumes, offers extensive technical information on all works, details of the artist’s handwritten notes as well as provenance, references to literature, and exhibition credits, in addition to a large number of full-page color illustrations of the works. Comments, quotations, and comparative illustrations of individual catalogue numbers supplement the information on the works. The present volume provides access to Richter’s extensive oeuvre from the Cologne Cathedral window in 2007 to his last sculptures in 2019.
GERHARD RICHTER (*1932) is one of the most influential contemporary artists. Richter studied from 1961 to 1964 at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, where he later taught as a professor. Richter lives and works in Cologne.
