Description: Alex Katz, a key New York-based artist since the early 1960s, is a towering figure in contemporary painting. He is best known for his larger-than-life portraits of sophisticated women, painted with consummate technique, as well as portraits of men, group portraits, landscapes and interiors. This is the most up-to-date survey available of his extensive oeuvre. His work is in many major museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Tate Modern, London; the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; and the Nationalgalerie, Berlin. This expanded 256-page edition devotes ample space to his lush paintings while covering the full span of his prolific 50-year career.
