The oeuvre of Gerhard Richter (born 1932) embraces in excess of 3,000 individual works. Over a period of five decades he has created a stylistically heterogeneous, complex body of work that testifies to his status as the most important living artist of our time. Dietmar Elger, director of the Gerhard Richter Archive at the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, has spent years researching and preparing the six-volume catalogue raisonn' that will be published through 2020. This second volume encompasses the works that Richter assigned numbers 199 to 388, covering the years 1968 to 1976. A total of over 500 paintings and sculptures are listed.
Aside from the richly colored illustrations (many of them full-page), it includes full technical details, information about the artist's handwritten notes and the provenance, bibliography and exhibitions of each individual work. This information is supplemented by commentary, quotes and comparison images.
