The diverse work of internationally renowned artist Gerhard Richter ranges from photo-based pictures to gestural abstraction. "Semblance is the theme of my life," he has stated; "All that is, seems, and is visible to us because we perceive it by the reflected light of semblance." His oeuvre frequently calls into question many widely-held attitudes about such issues and much else--the importance of stylistic consistency, the "natural" evolution of individual artistic sensibility, the spontaneity of creativity and the relationship of technological means and mass-media imagery to traditional studio methods and formats. This beautifully produced catalogue raisonne of Richter's oeuvre between 1993 and 2004 publishes many works for the first time, and is essential reading for fans of RIchter's work.
