The catalogue Gerhard Richter. Atlas der Fotos, Collagen und Skizzen was published on the occasion of the exhibition Der Atlas und seine Bilder in Städtische Galerie in the Lenbachhaus, München.

 

The book displays 633 plates of Gerhard Richter’s Atlas. Atlas is a collection of photographs, newspaper cuttings and sketches, which the artist compiled and then arranged on single sheets beginning in the mid 1960s. The plates, which often contain templates for his paintings, reflect different stages of Richter’s life and work.
