Gerhard Richter im Albertinum Dresden was published to coincide with the opening of the Gerhard Richter Rooms at Galerie Neue Meister in 2004.
More than 40 permanent loans allowed the Dresden Albertinum to present distinctive examples of Gerhard Richter's artistic development from 1963 to 2004. For the Dresden-born Richter, who studied at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts this exhibition closes a circle: while he learned from the Old Masters at the Gemäldegalerie as a student, he is now exhibited in their vicinity at Galerie Neue Meister (The New Masters Gallery). The book documents all three Richter Rooms. An essay by Jürgen Becker is completed by an interview, which Jan Thorn-Prikker conducted with Gerhard Richter.
With a foreword by Martin Roth and Ulrich Bischoff.
