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' figurative style...which continues to influence contemporary painters.

New York School painter Alex Katz developed his highly stylized aesthetic in reaction to 1950s Abstract Expressionism, finding his own distinctive resolution between formalism and representation. His brightly colored figurative and landscape paintings are rendered in a flat style that takes cues from everyday visual culture like advertising and cinema, in many ways anticipating both the formal and conceptual concerns of Pop Art. Well known for his many portraits of his wife and muse, Ada, Katz has also dedicated himself to printmaking and freestanding sculptures of cutout figures painted on wood or aluminum.
