In the meantime this catalogue Kunstmuseum Basel HINTERGRUND ('Background') concentrates on this large figurative, historically inspired paintings that differ considerable form his original works that were struggling with abstraction. Not that his images are photorealistic - they most assuredly are not - but they now take on an immediacy that produces a visceral response form the viewer. They can be appreciated for both the dazzling technique and bizarre juxtapositions of colors as well as for the art history and political history they address. These are paintings well worth the attention of a wider audience, and this catalogue is a fine start in appreciating the new phase of Daniel Richter's painting. Grady Harp, May 11
Overall a good book though.
