This exhibition of the work of renowned American artist Alex Katz comprises more than 30 objects, all drawn from the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. The exhibition begins chronologically with landscape paintings and collages from the 1950s, lesser-known works from early in Katz’s career. Katz would retain the flat, unmodulated colors from his collages in his hallmark paintings from the 1960s and beyond—enormous, brilliantly colored images of his family and friends—several of which are in the exhibition. Katz’s portraits became occasions for the exploration of distilled form and color, while poetically evoking the character of each individual. The exhibition illuminates the development of Katz’s career over more than four decades while moving across various media, from drawing and prints to painting and sculpture.
This exhibition is organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
