The diverse work of internationally renowned artist Gerhard Richter ranges from photo-based pictures to gestural abstraction. "Semblance is the theme of my life," he has stated; "All that is, seems, and is visible to us because we perceive it by the reflected light of semblance." His oeuvre frequently calls into question many widely-held attitudes about such issues and much else--the importance of stylistic consistency, the "natural" evolution of individual artistic sensibility, the spontaneity of creativity and the relationship of technological means and mass-media imagery to traditional studio methods and formats. This beautifully produced catalogue raisonn´┐Ż of Richter's oeuvre between 1993 and 2004 publishes many works for the first time, and is essential reading for fans of RIchter's work.
