Katz By Katz- Painting Of Woman Enjoying Self Portrait By Alex Katz

Katz By Katz
painting of woman enjoying self portrait by Alex Katz

G. Boersma
acrylic on masonite
8" x 8" or 20 x 20 cm


Katz was one of the first artists to return to figurative painting following Abstract art’s dominance at midcentury. Katz’s simplification of forms and elimination of detail relates to hard-edged Color-Field painting and to Pop Art’s emulation of commercial graphics—two early 1960s styles that influenced him.

Katz began concentrating on casual portraiture of family and friends in the late 1950s. Self-portraits appear periodically throughout his career. Never one to dwell on inner psychology, I wonder what my figure makes of this self portrait.
