"This extraordinary six-volume slipcased production offers a comprehensive account of a largely unexplored (though immensely popular) aspect of the practice of Gerhard Richter: the Overpainted Photographs series, which he began creating in the mid-1980s and still engages with today.
These works begin with informal photographs--often snapshots of the artist's personal life--which are subsequently obscured under layers of paint. Richter's process often transforms their visual meaning entirely, creating a fascinating and dreamlike body of work.
The first volume contains essays including newly commissioned texts on the Overpainted Photographs by acclaimed American art critic Robert Storr, Hans Ulrich Obrist, curator, critic and co-director of Serpentine Galleries, Paul Moorhouse of the National Portrait Gallery, Stefan Gronert, Christine Mehring and Dorothee Brill alongside important reprinted texts on the subject, including essays by Siri Husvedt, Uwe M. Schneede and Botho Strauss."
