This is the Spanish-language edition of September: A History Painting by Gerhard Richter is now available. Eminent American scholar and curator Robert Storr offers an authoritative consideration of September, Richter's 2005 painting made in response to the attacks on the World Trade Center of 11 September 2001. Opening with a vivid personal account of being in New York that day and paying particular attention to the role of the media, Storr deftly explores the geopolitical context of the attacks, capturing the effects of the atrocity on a deeply human level while navigating the complex web of political, social, religious, and cultural factors that it embodied and the discourse it has provoked. 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.
