'Winter Landscape' by Alex Katz

Alex Katz

Alex Katz (American, born 1927) is one of the most influential and widely known artists of the twentieth century. He has defined a singular American vision for more than fifty years, influencing generations of artists and broadening the horizon for painting as a vital and relevant artistic practice in the twenty-first century. Today, Katz demonstrates how painting can provide a welcome and enlightening break from an endless flood of digital images of mass media. Of the hundred-plus museum collections of Katz’s art worldwide, the High Museum’s is among the largest.
