The work of American painter, sculptor and graphic artist Alex Katz is on display at the Albertina, Vienna in 2023.
Katz is one of the key figures in the history of 20th-century American art, and became famous for his figurative paintings recognisable by their bright colours and two-dimensional style. Whilst he has been described as a forefather of the Pop Art movement, influencing the likes of Andy Warhol, his work is not confined to one specific genre which makes it really interesting.
In celebration of Alex Katz's 95th birthday, the ALBERTINA Museum is paying homage to the artist by showcasing a comprehensive collection of his works from their vast collection. In 2022, the ALBERTINA Museum's major Katz works were loaned out to the Guggenheim Museum and the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid.
