Gerhard Richter is one of the most influential artists of the second half of the twentieth century and is still at the forefront of painting today. His painting September is a response to the bombing of the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001, made some four years after the event.

The eminent American critic and curator Robert Storr, who has had a long working relationship with Richter, explores both the painting and the event itself, through a very personal account of his experience of being in New York on the day of the bombing. Storr shows, both through words and comparative illustrations, how this painting is part of a current running throughout Richter's career responding to traumatic and controversial events, including works based on the bombing of cities in World War II and the capture of the Baader-Meinhof terrorist group.
