The book Gerhard Richter. Aquarelle und Zeichnungen was published on the occasion of the exhibition Gerhard Richter. Retrospektive at the Albertina in Vienna in 2009.
Unlike in the artist’s previous retrospectives, Gerhard Richter’s graphics are given a prominent place. The exhibited works on paper span a period of 40 years, from 1966 to 2006. This overview shows how Richter’s drawings and watercolours initially focused on the abstract, and also show to what extent they interact with his paintings.
The book includes a foreword by Klaus Albrecht Schröder and an essay by Barbara Steffen.
