Alex Katz at Museum Brandhorst

alex katz brandhorst

Provenance: Studio of the Artist. In this new series of dancer portraits, Katz magnifies movement through the radical cropping that characterizes his unique style, focusing on isolated parts of the body shown in captured movement. This further enhances an art site that contains the Alte and the Neue Pinakothek, and also the Pinakothek der Moderne. As Katz once said, his art had something aggressive and authoritarian about it - he showed the viewer where he must look 3. All galleries with the exception of the Media Suite have white walls and wooden floorboards of Danish oak. The use of a red background recalls one of Katz's early paintings, the famous The Red Smile 1963, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York , which is a portrait of Ada, his wife, and muse. The story of Alex Katz, going by his own words, has been that of a continuous misunderstanding on the part of the critics and the public.

Born in 1927, Alex Katz is one of the most accomplished and influential American painters of the past fifty years, and he is still painting. Dancer 2 is part of a series of silkscreens from 2019, all of which focus on graceful ballerina dancers in various poses on a black or red background. A towering figure in contemporary painting best known for his iconic portraits of beautiful, stylish women, masterfully rendered in bold, vibrant colors, Katz has influenced and inspired generations of artists around the world.

By cutting, you can convey more of the feeling of a performance than in a picture of people who are an inch tall. Alex Katz was born in New York in 1927 in a family of immigrants from Russia. So, too, does the ability of an individual brushstroke to delimit multiple different types of form while also retaining its status as an autonomous mark.
