Alex Katz: Maine/New York

Description

This title presents an insightful and engaging look at the work of figurative artist Alex Katz from the last 30 years. "Maine/New York" surveys three decades of the work of artist Alex Katz. A quintessential New York artist, Katz is also a part-time resident of rural Maine, and the subject matter of his painting accordingly shifts from landscape to cityscape, from rural vignette to Manhattan interior. In this volume the pleasant haze of city afternoon is juxtaposed with the flickering greens of rural life; the buzz of a fashionable social occasion with the dusk as it descends on a pond in the Maine woods. Along the way, we encounter the family members and friends who populate Katz's paintings, cast in his distinctive treatments of light and atmosphere.
