"This new edition is a newly conceptualized publication authorized by Gerhard RICHTER, containing the 'Atlas' work until 2005, including particularly plates of the War Cut cycle.

The 'Atlas' is a continuous, encyclopedic work containing c. 4.000 photographs, sketches and collages arranged on more than 700 panels. As a complete work RICHTER's 'Atlas' is an organism that continues to develop and change.

Begun in 1962, many of the ideas preceding RICHTER's painterly works find their expression in the photographs, sketches, plans and collages of the 'Atlas'." (publisher's note, © Koenig, 2011)
