This catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition Richter en France at the Musée de Grenoble in 2009.
Both the exhibition and catalogue are dedicated to works by Gerhard Richter that belong to public collections and museums in France. The artworks offer an insight into Richter’s different creative periods. Despite an emphasis on abstract paintings of the 1980s, paintings after photographs, grey monochrome pictures and drawings are also taken into account.
The text contributions provide an overview of Richter's œuvre and address grey paintings and glass works, as well as drawings separately.
Text contributions by Guy Tosatto, Jean-Pierre Criqui and Jonas Storsve.
