A compact overview of Gerhard Richter's work from 1993 to 1996. Designed by the artist himself, this book is a long-time best-seller from Hatje Cantz.

This book showcases the recent work of Gerhard Richter. After a short introduction to his early work, featuring pictures which the artist has kept in his studio, the publication gives an almost complete overview of Richter's work from the last three years. In addition to mainly abstract works, a cycle of eight pictures in smaller format of an intimate, private nature developed. Gerhard Richter has already used autobiographic elements in earlier years, but they appear stronger in this sequence of motifs which portray his young wife Sabine with child in a madonna-like attitude. With its full page colored illustrations, this publication, designed by the artist himself, is an extraordinary document of contemporary art.
