Gerhard Richter: Drawings
Gerhard Richter is regarded as one of the most important and influential painters working today.
In this HENI Talk, Professor Michael Newman explores Richter's lesser-known and largely experimental drawing practice. Newman analyses the repertoire of Richter's mark-making and their connections to his remarkable achievements in painting, looking closely at works in pencil and charcoal, a series of over-painted photographs, and a set of rarely seen painterly works created using coloured inks.
Michael Newman is Professor of Art Writing, Goldsmiths, University of London. An art historian and critic, Newman has written extensively on contemporary art, and has a long-standing interest in drawing, with numerous publications, including 'The Traces and Marks of Drawing' in The Stage of Drawing: Gesture and Act (Tate Publishing and The Drawing Center, 2003).
