Alex Katz was born in 1927 on July 24th in Brooklyn/New York and is one of the most important artists of american contemporary and pop art. His works are in all major museums around the world including Albertina/Vienna or MOMA/New York.
He developed his own kind of painting by producing iconic, cool effective images of life in the wealthy leisure class, and of natural idylls. In a further step, he reproduced, reflected, and reduced his motifs in his prints, which retained the planes of deep, radiant color that characterize his paintings.
Alex Katz celebrates his 85th Birthday on July 24th 2012.
