Additional Information

Item details
Gerhard Richter is one of the most influential artists of modern times. His painting September is a response to the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, made some four years after the event. Eminent American critic and curator Robert Storr, who has had a long working relationship with Richter, explores both the painting and the event itself, as filtered through an eyewitness account of what happened in New York that day. Through description, comparative illustrations, and references to precedents in modern art, literature, and warfare, Storr analyzes the image's meaning and how it adds to a current in Richter's career that questions evocations of traumatic and controversial moments in history. With a foreword by Sir Brian Urquhart, former Under-Secretary- General of the United Nations.

Robert Storr is an artist, writer and exhibition maker and the Dean of the Yale University School of Art. He is the author of Gerhard Richter: 40 Years of Painting and Cage: Six Paintings by Gerhard Richter.
