Gerhard Richter — ATLAS

Out of Stock

“Ein Foto macht man für ein Foto, und wenn man Glück hat, entdeckt man es später für ein Bild.” The Atlas is a continuous, encyclopedic work containing c. 4.000 photographs, sketches and collages arranged on more than 700 panels. As a complete work Richter’s Atlas is an organism that continues to develop and change. Begun in 1962, many of the ideas preceding Richter’s painterly works find their expression in the photographs, sketches, plans and collages of the Atlas
