Alex Katz


Born in New York in 1927, Alex Kaz studied at The Cooper Union in New York and at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine. His work has been the subject of nearly 200 solo exhibitions internationally since he first exhibited in 1954. He became widely known internationally following a large-scale retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1986 and a print retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum of Art in 1988. These were followed by major exhibitions of portraits and landscapes at the Saatchi Gallery, London, 1998; Galleria Civica di Arte Contemporanea, Trento, 1999 and Kunst und Ausstellungshalle der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, Bonn, 2002. In the summer of 2003, the first European exhibition devoted solely to the artist's celebrated portraits opened at the Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, Venice. Alex Katz's work can be found in numerous public collections worldwide.
