Alex Katz


Alex Katz's works are instantly recognizable and adored internationally. 

Born in 1927 Katz has been dedicated to art-making since the 1950's - however it wasn't until the following decade when he established his signature 'flat' style. 

A successor to the New York based Pop artists, notably Roy Lichtenstein, Katz has been an important influence on figurative painters of the late 20th century. We can see his influence on a host of artists including Eric Fischl, David Salle, Julian Opie, Elizabeth Peyton and Peter Doig. One could argue that Katz kept the tradition of figurative painting alive when it had gone terribly out of style. 

An active and devoted printmaker, Katz typically creates portraits and landscapes, subjects that he is personally connected to such as Soho cityscapes, the flora of rural Maine and the people in his life.

In 1957 Katz would meet his future wife "Ada" - over the course of the last fifty years he has depicted her over 200 years. She is the most iconic subject in his oeuvre and is depicted with affection, sincerity and devotion. 

"Red Ada" is a paradigm of his practice; a bold, timeless and uplifting portrait of his wife and muse.
