About the Artwork

Based on his 1981 painting Ada in Spain, this pigment print combines portraiture, by depicting Katz´s wife; Ada, - of almost seven decades, and the refreshing green background, which belongs to the artist´s iconic landscape oeuvre. ⁠

⁠"Ada for me is like Dora Maar to Picasso. But Ada has better shoulders, and could easily be Miss America.” —Alex Katz

The painting ended at the spring´s Bonhams auction of 2018 in New York, selling for over $280,000.
