See all Firenze editions

 

The Firenze edition from 2000 comprises 118 works, all of which are oil paint on colour photographs, framed and behind glass. The series is based on three photographs taken by Richter in 1999 on the banks of the river Arno in Florence.

Firenze was created as a special edition for the book Gerhard Richter: City Life  which contains a CD with music by Steve Reich. Both the edition and the book (published by Prato in 2002) were made to support the Contempoartensemble orchestra of Florence.

 

Edition:
99 copies, signed, dated and numbered in black felt-tip pen on the reverse, title stickered to the reverse



12 copies, signed, dated and numbered in Roman numerals in black felt-tip pen on the reverse, title stickered to the reverse



7 artist's proofs, signed, dated, numbered and inscribed a.p. in black felt-tip pen on the reverse, title stickered to the reverse


The Firenze edition should not be confused with the publication Florence by Dietmar Elger (published by Hatje Cantz in 2001) which included a selection of overpainted photographs by Richter from 1997-2001.
