Azaleas on Yellow
Updated: Apr 6
Alex Katz is an American painter renowned for his large-scale depictions of flowers, landscapes, and portraits. Katz’s flat planes, simplification of detail, and alla-prima paint application, are trademarks of his work.
This piece, Azaleas on Yellow, showcases Katz’s smooth aesthetic. He is able to utilize wide brushstrokes with large swathes of rich color to refine his compositions and produce stunning work.
Katz’s artworks are what art historian Robert Storr has called “a new and distinctive type of realism in American art which combines aspects of both abstraction and representation.”
