“Gerhard Richter: Drawings and Watercolors, 1964-1999”

KUNSTMUSEUM WINTERTHUR

September 4–November 21, 1999

The epitome of a painter's painter, Gerhard Richter has nonetheless produced a proportionally small but significant body of drawings and watercolors. These works on paper, many of which were made during periods of stylistic transition, should shed light on Richter's working process. The 300-plus pieces presented here were selected by Kunstmuseum director Dieter Schwarz, who is preparing a catalogue raisonné of Richter's drawings for publication on the occasion of this exhibition.
