(Richter) Gerhard Richter, Atlas. Cologne, Walther König, 2015. Four vol. large in-fol. 828 pp. Orig. grey linen, slipcase and cardboard box. Monumental set in pristine condition, as issued. Gerhard Richter (1932°) began mounting parts of his extensive collection of pictorial material, the pieces that he considered important, on cardboard, more than 50 years ago. He did so guided by the desire to create order and clarity: private photos, cuttings from newspapers and magazines, sketches, drawings, construction plans, designs for rooms, collages, overpainted photographs as well as draft versions and paintings. The Atlas soon developed into an independent 'Gesamtkunstwerk' mirroring biographical and historical facts. In 2012, Richter began to consider not only reproducing the Atlas, but rearranging it as a book. His decision to show all of the plates at a scale of 1:2 makes the monumental archive, with more than 5,000 images, visible in all its details for the first time.Description NL(Richter) Gerhard Richter, Atlas.
