The two great polar tendencies of Gerhard Richter's art — pure abstraction and photo-realism — have never been at odds with one another, and are in fact complementary aspects of Richter's total vision. Nowhere is this more in evidence than in his landscape work — work which stretches the boundaries of one of painting's most cliche-ridden traditions. Since the late 1960s Richter's landscape paintings have formed an integral part of the artist's overall body of work, and one which this book documents in depth. Presented here in lush reproductions, these works are given the separate consideration they have always warranted, and the result is a book that can be counted among the most important on this seminal artist.
