"Plaid Shirt I" and "Plaid Shirt II" are dynamic, 16-color screenprints on American Etching paper and are among Alex Katz's largest prints at nearly four feet tall. In his catalogue raisonne of prints, the artist explains the reasoning for two versions of this print: "At first the pink color was going to be much brighter, as it is in the painting. But I thought it was more correct to tone the chroma way down." He eventually went one step further and used a simplified palette of cool greys in a later variation of this print.

Each print is hand signed and numbered and in good condition.
