Renowned for his vivid, larger‐than‐life portraits, Alex Katz is a towering figure in contemporary painting. His work can be found in institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, MoMA, LACMA, and the National Portrait Gallery.
The revised and expanded edition of Phaidon’s landmark survey is the most up‐to‐date overview of Katz’s prolific 50‐year career. Featuring more than 300 gorgeous reproductions of key works, Alex Katz devotes ample space to the artist’s lush portraits while also including his landscapes, sculptures, and painted books. Rounding out the book’s content are writings from the artist himself; contributions from Robert Storr, Iwona Blazwick, Carter Ratcliff; and a new essay by Barry Schwabsky.
