Before the rise of Pop art, American artist Alex Katz (born 1927) developed an iconic style of figurative painting in the early 1960s—influenced by film, television and billboard advertising. Katz created seemingly detached and incredibly stylish portraits of New York’s social and art scenes as well as idyllic landscapes. Printmaking plays an equally central role in Katz’s work; he uses lithographs, etchings, silkscreens, woodcuts and linocuts to reproduce, reflect and further reduce his bold aesthetic, while retaining the radiant color characteristic of his paintings.
Since the first edition of this catalogue raisonné, published in 2011, Katz has almost doubled his output of prints. This timely new edition includes his complete prints, cutouts and artists’ books, in addition to his book illustrations and public art projects. New essays and interviews with the artist provide profound insights into the work of one of the foremost American artists today.
