About the Artwork

Alex Katz has been painting portraits for nearly 50 years, synthesizing a kind of color field abstraction with realism. As the artist and his wife summered in the bucolic landscape of Maine, the landscape and wildlife has also become a trademark subject.

“I’m trying to show people how I see. I have an idea and then it becomes very empirical. I don’t think about it twice.”
ALEX KATZ



Despite the social status of the sitter, Katz's portraits are always intimate, friendly, yet aloof alluding to the sophisticated ambivalence as the key element of artist's aesthetics.
