This large-format publication is the first book-length presentation of the drawings of "painter prince" Daniel Richter.

Daniel Richter, born in Eutin in 1962 and today based in Berlin and Hamburg, is one of the German artists who set out to conquer the international art world at the end of the nineties. He succeeded in doing so, even though - or perhaps because - the period was dominated by so-called new media and conceptual space installations, and the "end of painting" had once more been proclaimed. He remained loyal to his medium and has become celebrated as the new "prince of painting" next to Neo Rauch and others. Until 2000, Daniel Richter painted abstract pictures exclusively. His recent works display a surprising turn towards the figurative, blending a sophisticated use of color and composition, as well as a wealth of grotesque elements of form and art-historical references, into a style uniquely his. This large-format publication is the first to present Daniel Richter´s drawings in full-color illustrations. The artist: Daniel Richter, born 1962 in Eutin. 1991-1995 studied at the Hochschule der Bildenden Künste, Hamburg. 1998 Otto-Dix Award. Numerous exhibitions in galleries and museums.
