Artist of the Day: Alex Katz

Alex Katz is an influential painter who is often associated with the Pop art movement. A frequent subject of his work has been his wife Ada. Katz is known for his bold, precise, brush strokes and graphic treatment of space.

Though flatness is usually an element of his paintings his subjects are rendered with keen observation and often warm familiarity.
