September : A History Painting by Gerhard RichterBook - 2010
"Gerhard Richter is one of the most influential artists of modern times. His painting 'September' is the response to the bombing of the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001, made some four years after the event. Eminent American critic and curator Robert Storr, who has had a long working relationship with Richter, explores both the painting and the event itself, as filtered through an eyewitness account of what happened in New York that day. Through description, comparative illustrations, and references to precedents in modern art, literature, and warfare, Storr analyzes the image's meaning and how it adds to a current in Richter's career that questions evocations of traumatic and controversial moments in history"--P.  of cover.
