Alex Katz

Alex Katz (born in 1927 in New York) is considered one of the most important artists of our time. His large-format paintings are characterised by their simplified, colour-intensive style, which the artist developed in the 1950s in opposition to the prevailing Abstract Expressionism. Today they are almost synonymous with his work.

Important motifs in his œuvre are flowers. The intensive examination of simplified form, light reflection and colour composition is the artist's main focus, rather than specific statements.

Alex Katz has been honoured several times for his work, which is represented in numerous renowned collections, including the collection of the MoMA and the Whitney Museum in New York, the Tate Britain in London and the collection of the Museum Brandhorst in Munich.
