This dazzling silkscreen print was created in 1992 by the Vera List print program to raise funds for Lincoln Center. The poster was based on a screen print created by Alex Katz of the same name. This work was, exceptionally, boldly signed, inscribed and dated in black marker in 2016 by Alex Katz. The provenance is direct as Alex Katz signed and dedicated this for the present owner. This exquisite print is extremely uncommon when hand signed by the artist; many find it more desirable than the eponymous print, since this has the cultural Lincoln Center text on it -- would look great in any room or as a memorable gift! In fine condition, never framed. A terrific value and a great present. No better provenance!

About Alex Katz

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.

American, b. 1927, New York, New York, based in New York, New York
