ALEX KATZ’S PAINTINGS

Tuesday August 26th, 2014

The Viennese museum Albertina is holding an exhibition about Alex Katz‘s work (NY, 1927), named ‘Alex Katz. Drawings, cartoons, paintings’.

The trace of his portraits is halfway between illustration and painting (explained by the two stages of his learning –first he painted on drawing and then he learned painting ‘from life), which captures the faces of people close to him -included his wife and muse, Ada-. Over time, the drawing up of his paintings and monochrome background has become his trademark. The collection of his work that caught my attention the most is related to costume design that Katz conducted to his friend, the choreographer Paul Taylor, back in the 60s. Since that time, some of his paintings hinted that fashionista touch.

(La exposición en el Albertina de Viena se podrá visitar hasta el 28 de septiembre de 2014)
