Artist's Books


The catalogue Gerhard Richter. Atlas von de foto’s en schetsen was published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition in Utrecht.


The first publication of Atlas by Richter displays plates in black and white exclusively. Atlas is a collection of photographs, newspaper cuttings and sketches that the artist compiled and then arranged on single sheets beginning in the mid 1960s. The plates, which often contain templates for his paintings, reflect topics with which Richter deals artistically and privately.
