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

Harbor is among the many subjects of nature that have most recently captured the artist’s eye. The artwork is committed to the visualization of the moment, free from any narrative elements. The past and the future are irrelevant, as they are already inscribed in the immediate present which Katz tries to translate into the medium of painting.
