The Artist

Alex Katz

New York born and based artist Alex Katz is a figurative artist whose majority of work revolves around portraits and landscape paintings and prints. In the beginning of his career as an artist, Katz made small collages of people in landscape settings from delicately cutting hand coloured strips of paper. From there he moved on to create paintings which had a greater sense of realism. This was around 1950. It was in this time too that the artist became interested in portraiture, in which he often liked to portray his friends, and Ada, his wife and muse.
