From series Elbe by Gerhard Richter, 1957
These works are the result of experiments Richter undertook with an ink roller during a printing course. Usually the rubber roller would be used to apply the ink as evenly as possible to printing blocks from which prints were then made. Richter, however, inked the roller deliberately unevenly and then applied it directly to the paper. In this way he created broad tracks of black that vary considerably in their appearance.
The Elbe monotypes, printed on A4 paper, foreshadow Richter’s later abstract works, and are fascinating in their subtle oscillation between figuration, landscape and abstraction. [ftp]
