Gerhard Richter Overpainted Photographs

Edited by Marcus Heinzelmann with texts by Siri Hustvedt, Marcus Heinzelmann, Uwe M. Shneede, and Botho Strauss.

Osfildern: Hatje Catz Verlag, 2008. Condition: fine. In tan cloth. 390pp. Quarto.

400 reproductions of Richter’s overpainted photographs from a series he has worked on periodically since 1989. Beginning with small format photos—generally 10 by 15 cm—Richter melds two distinct idioms, abstract painting and the figurative photograph, creating startling juxtapositions between realities. Musing on the “visual poetry” of the pieces, Siri Hustvedt quotes surrealist poet Paul Eluard: “the earth is as blue as an orange.” –such is the dissonance created in these prints.
