2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By C. Ondrus on January 20, 2007
Format: Paperback
An astoundingly philosophical book concerning painting. Richter's entries reveal a depth to his practice seldom articulated so profoundly by a visual artist. I think this book is an essential read to people seriously engaged in the practice of painting. Not a light read, but extremely thought provoking and engaging.

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Leslie J. Roberts on March 21, 2008
Format: Paperback
Hard to explain why artists need this book without sounding pretentious. Richter questions not only the conventions of art, but his own decisions and intentions. Sometimes he contradicts his younger self. And he's fine with that. The book is at once unsettling and comforting. Anyway, one more book I don't lend out.
(On another level, it's a lively read as an autobiography of sorts: The insistently radical young artist gradually matures into the quietly subversive elder statesman.)
