Product Description
Alex Katz Notecard Folio
A native of Brooklyn, Alex Katz (born 1927) was raised in St. Albans, New York, and now lives and works in Manhattan, Pennsylvania, and Maine, where he paints landscapes and flowers, and, more often, human faces and figures. During his education at the Cooper Union and in the years following, Katz had compelling encounters with the work of Henri Matisse, Pierre Bonnard, Mark Rothko, Philip Guston, and many other painters. Like the Europeans, he chose the figure over abstraction. He was not alone among American artists, since from Fairfield Porter (born twenty years before him) to Nathan Oliveira (born one year after him) painters on both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts had persisted in following the representative tradition. In Katz’s case, that has meant flattening his subjects and creating broad areas of uniform color. A departure from the human figures he places in stylish settings, the decorative plants Katz has lithographed are evenly lit, coolly compelling. Says Katz, “I think style is the content of my painting, and style belongs to fashion. Fashion is the immediate present and that’s what I’m really after . . . to maintain that present tense feeling.”
