More information about this artwork

Acclaimed for his vibrant and colorful flat surfaces, Alex Katz is one of the most respected living American artists with a career that spans six remarkable decades. With a minimal and highly stylized aesthetic influenced by films, television and billboard advertising, Katz is the visionary New York painter of his generation who embodied the defiance towards 1950s Abstract Expressionism and the anticipation of Pop Art. His works are defined by his extreme emotional detachment and his emblematic flatness of color and form. Katz has remained a prolific painter with an impressive collection of linear portraits and environmental landscapes.

Vivien with Hat is a classic example of his signature aesthetics, portraying a close-up shot of Vivien, his son Vincent’s wife. His focus on the faces of his subjects using a cinematic approach, both in the framing and lighting, is another hallmark of his innovative and provocative work. Being considered an influential precursor to the Pop Art movement, Katz’s works are incredibly valuable.
