In this week’s New Yorker there’s a long article on Alex Katz.
I’ve not been a big fan of his…not because I don’t think he’s good. Maybe it’s just that the work is never very interesting to me. It doesn’t hold my attention. The surface is smooth. The colors are often bland. The compositions are straight forward. He is however, 91 years old and painting up a storm! He paints 7 days a week. He is still competitive and opinionated. So here are some recent landscapes that I rather like and a great photo of him with a painting of his wife...one of MANY!
