In the summer of 2022 and for the first time in Spain, the museum presents a retrospective on the American painter Alex Katz (born New York, 1927), one of the key figures in the history of 20th century American art and a forerunner of Pop Art who continues active today.
The exhibition is co-curated by Guillermo Solana and Tomàs Llorens, the museum’s artistic director and emeritus artistic director, respectively. It benefits from the support of the artist and his studio, who are in close contact with this project. The display will include around 30 large-format oils accompanied by various studies, offering a survey of all of the artist’s habitual themes: his individual, double and group portraits together with his distinctive flowers and sweeping landscapes painted with bright colours and flat backgrounds.
This catalog encompasses all the show's contents and differente essays.
