Gerhard Richter
Arosa, Atlas Sheet 333

from “Portraits” project (1984)
By Patrick Tosani
I saw some of these self-portraits in a book about the artist more generally, but this was the project I really dug.  I wish I knew more about it, though…I didn’t get to really read through the book, and his website is in French, and in Flash, so Google Translate isn’t really doing its job too well.  If anyone is able to find an artist’s statement or a press release for this show, I’d love to have a link to it!  Thanks!
See more of Tosani’s work at his official site (hope you can read French!).
