Gerd Richter: Comic Strip 1962

Gerhard Richter Archiv, Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden Vol 13

Edited by Dietmar Elger.

Reproducing a recently found 1962 notebook, this small, beautifully clothbound volume reveals a never-before-seen dimension of Gerhard Richter's art. Comic Strip 1962 contains a series of cartoon-like drawings, done in the style of American greats such as Saul Steinberg (hence the artist's cartoonist-style abbreviation of his name to "Gerd" here). The black-and-white drawings generally feature one or many hatted silhouette figures, floating in the air, against bare backdrops or atop planets, with occasional handwritten text (in German, and mostly illegible) interspersed around them. These works, printed at their original size, and made at the outset of Richter's career, greatly expand our picture of the influences and factors at play in his early years as part of the Capitalist Realist movement.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The New York Review of Books

J. Hoberman

[is] a sparely beautiful book-object that, like Krazy Kat or Little Orphan Annie, has a central character or rather an expressive motif.

The New York Review of Books

J. Hoberman

in its technical virtuosity, Comic Strip looks forward to the dynamic abstract pencil drawings and paintings this fecund artist would produce in the late 1990s, a decade after the end of the cold war.
