Complementing Gerhard Richter’s hitherto six-volume Catalogue Raisonné, published between 2011 and 2022, this concluding seventh double volume will be published. Catalogue 7a encompasses all the works that make up the German artist’s remarkably complex oeuvre that have been featured in the previous six volumes–reproduced at a scale of 1:50.
The catalogue thus provides a unique overview of the artist’s entire oeuvre, tracing its development as well as Richter’s shifts between different styles. The appendix also lists amendments and important corrections to the catalogue of works. In addition, Richter’s new works since the completion of Volume 6 in 2019 will be published here. Volume 7b contains an extensive biography as well as detailed information on exhibitions and a bibliography, supplemented by numerous illustrations.
