Alex Katz, – Brooklyn, 1927 – is best known for his exceptional portraits. His unique style is one of a kind and can not be confused for any other.
The Guggenheim Bilbao – famous for the building itself and for the outstanding exhibitions – is showing us his lesser known style – the Landscape.
Alex Katz choice of flat colors, according to him, in order to capture the real feel of the actual landscape are simply breathtaking. The outrageously big dimension of his work lures you in, making you feel the actual weight of the landscape he is representing.
Katz is one of the best artist of his time, and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see such a special part of his work in one exhibition.
