Gerhard Richter: Panorama is the first and most complete overview of Richter’s whole career. Where previous monographs have focused on a single aspect of his work, this stunningly illustrated survey encompasses his entire oeuvre, now stretching across more than a half-century of activity. It includes his photo- paintings, abstracts, landscapes and seascapes, portraits, colour charts, glass and mirror works, sculptures, drawings and photographs, providing the definitive account of Richter’s colossal artistic achievements.

Alongside his celebrated abstractions, early black-and- white paintings and the photorealist depictions of candles, skulls and clouds that have become indisputable icons of modern painting, this new edition of Panorama includes over forty paintings made between 2000 and 2015, studio photographs and archival images, alongside texts by an array of international critics and curators. With more than 300 illustrations, and an interview with the artist by Nicholas Serota, Director of Tate, this landmark publication remains the most comprehensive survey of one of the world’s most pre-eminent contemporary artists.
