Alex Katz

alexkatzTate describes figurative art as any form of modern art that retains strong references to the real world and particularly to the human figure. Alex Katz is such a painter known primarily for his large portraiture and landscape paintings. His work is inspired by the woodcuts of Japanese artist Kitagawa Utamaro with their flatness of color, bold simplicity and a feeling of cool but emotional detachment. We’ve posted his work because on December 1st his paintings will feature prominently on H & M womenswear, menswear, accessories and home decor.
