Lot description
Alex Katz (b. 1927) is an American artist best known for his portraits done in a Pop style. In his paintings, prints, and sculptures, Katz transforms everyday subjects and scenes in colorful, bold compositions. His sitters are often his own friends and family, whom he renders in a reductive style, focusing on the formal properties of light, color, and scale, making his art accessible and appealing to a wide variety of viewers. Katz's works are inspired by the works of fellow Pop artists including David Hockey and Roy Lichtenstein. The artist also explores themes of social interaction and language in his works.
