The artist's book War Cut, designed by Gerhard Richter focuses on Abstract Painting [CR: 648-2] of 1987, which is located at Musée d'art moderne de la ville de Paris.

In May 2002, Gerhard Richter took detailed photographs of the picture, in which dark colours dominate and whose rather rough appearance is striking.

Two years later, Richter takes the photographs up again for his book project War Cut. 216 close-up photographs are juxtaposed to 216 texts from the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeinen Zeitung of 20th and 21th March 2003, the beginning of the Iraq War. Whereas Gerhard Richter assembles the pictures following aesthetical principles, the texts are mainly printed in their chronological order. The layout of the book follows a formal pattern: the photographs as well as the texts fill a space of 10 x 15 cm.
