About Artist:

Legendary American-born painter Alex Katz (b. 1927) is known for painting portraits and landscapes that possess a quality Robert Storr of the Museum of Modern Art defined as the unquantifiable "cool." Katz first exhibited in New York City in 1954; solo exhibitions have included the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the USF Contemporary Art Museum, Guggenheim Bilbao, the Tate Modern, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Carnegie Museum of Art.


Portraits are one of the great subjects of Alex Katz's paintings and prints. Katz's editions with Graphicstudio are illustrative of his signature approach and style of transforming his circle of family and friends into visually arresting icons. In Tracy, the artist shows the back of the model's head only, suggesting character and personality through the set of the shoulders and the contrasting gray and gold tonalities of the hair, skin, dress and background. Mae is deceptively simple with subtle tonalities and luminous layers.
