COA: This work comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from West Chelsea Contemporary
Literature: Lococo Fine Art, St. Louis
Additional Information: As one of the most important proponents of figurative realism, Alex Katz has been painting portraits for nearly 50 years, synthesizing a kind of color field abstraction with realism. Often portraying people from the New York art and intellectual scenes, the artist generalizes the features of his subjects and reduces the work to formal properties of light, color and scale, thereby making the faces in his work more familiar to all possible viewers. This particular piece depicts a woman’s face in tight close-up and then again in even tighter close-up, her piercing eyes staring out at and engaging viewers.
