About this item
There are few contemporary artists with the international recognition and reputation of Gerhard Richter. November presents Richter’s series of the same name, comprised of ink drawings that he created throughout the month of November 2008. The series began by accident: Richter dripped ink onto a sheet of highly absorbent paper, then quickly realized that the spill formed two images, different but related, on the front and the back of the page. Intrigued, he began manipulating the ink, changing its consistency or adding lacquer or pencil marks, and he ultimately applied these techniques to make images on twenty-seven sheets of paper. This book presents all fifty-four drawings that resulted, as facsimiles, along with an explanatory text by Dieter Schwarz setting November in the context of Richter’s career.
