Alex Katz: The Sixties offers readers a selection of works by the pioneering painter who redefined portraiture and landscape in the 1960s. Bridging Pop and Minimalist sensibilities, these prints, paintings and other works are quintessential examples of style as content: Katz intimates the familiar rather than describe it, and prods the viewer''s perception past preconceived ideas. Katz''s work catalyzes an immediate response, both pictorially and emotionally, to the human condition. His work is included in collections at The Museum of Modern Art, the Hirschhorn, The Art Institute of Chicago, the Saatchi Collection and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Tokyo.
