Gerhard Richter: Early Work, 1951-1972

Gerhard Richter: Early Work, 1951-1972 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Born in Dresden in 1932, Gerhard Richter was first educated under the prevailing doctrine of Socialist Realism and retrained after emigrating to West Germany, thus uniquely embodying the division of Germany during the Cold War. This volume brings together new studies of his early career by an international group of scholars.

The authors approach the context from a variety of angles including the social and political histories of a divided Germany, the conflicted development of Soviet Socialist Realism in East Germany, a Cold War visuality integrating pre- and post-resettlement works, the archival dimension of the artist’s output in relation to Richter’s Atlas, and the artist’s involvement in the representation of his work in archives, exhibitions, and catalogues. The essays began as papers delivered at a symposium held at the Getty Research Institute in 2007 in conjunction with the exhibition From Caspar David Friedrich to Gerhard Richter: German Paintings from Dresden at the J. Paul Getty Museum.

Book News Annotation:

This volume stems from a 2007 symposium held in conjunction with an exhibition titled From Caspar David Friedrich to Gerhard Richter: German Paintings from Dresden. The exhibition was organized jointly by the Getty Museum in Los Angeles (where it was held), the Galerie Neue Meister in Dresden, and the Atelier Gerhard Richter. Scholarship on Richter has taken a significant turn for a variety of reasons, among them the fact that the artist himself is making more documents available and is speaking more, there is increased access to archives and collections in the former East Germany, and there is a consensus (among the essayists presented here) that despite the artist's efforts to have his early works disregarded, they are indeed worthy of study. The three editors are art historians affiliated as follows: Christine Mehring (U. of Chicago), Jeanne Anne Nugent (independent scholar based in New York), and Jon L. Seydl (Cleveland Museum of Art).
