Alex Katz’s bold portraits and lyrical landscapes are among the most recognizable images of contemporary art. Quintessentially American and characterized by cool detachment, his works spark a dialogue between abstraction and representation. In celebration of the 60-year career of Katz (born 1927), and the promised gift of an archive of the artist’s prints from the 1960s to today, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), will present Alex Katz Prints, on view from April 28 through July 29 in the Ann and Graham Gund Gallery. This retrospective—conceived and drawn from the collection of the Albertina Graphic Collection in Vienna, which received the gift of a major Katz print archive—will showcase approximately 125 works. Included among them will be portraits of Ada, Katz’s wife and longtime muse, family members, and figures from the worlds of art and culture; landscapes of Maine; portfolios; and illustrated books of poetry. In Boston, additional works from the MFA’s collection and promised archive will be included, and a special highlight will be Rush (1971), a series of 37 paintings given by Katz to the MFA in 2011, which will make its Boston debut during the exhibition.
