Alex Katz is an American painter, sculptor and graphic artist who became famous for his figurative paintings. His works are immediately recognizable by their colorful, two-dimensional style, which was created as a reaction to the Abstract Expressionism of the 1950s. Although Alex Katz is widely recognized for his role as a precursor of the Pop Art movement, he has avoided being associated with any style or movement throughout his career.

GALERIE FRANK FLUEGEL has had the artist Alex Katz in its program from the very beginning and has also pointed out for years that he was long completely underestimated in Europe. Now that he is over 90 years old, his work is increasingly becoming the focus of collectors.

Many of his works get highly demanded by collectors such as Ulla in Black Hat, Ada, Big Red Smile, Purple Hat or Blue Umbrella.

Alex Katz will be 93 years old on 24 July 2020.

A new world record for a painting by the American artist Alex Katz was set at the Phillips auction house in London on Wednesday, October 2, 2019. The painting Blue Umbrella I from 1972 fetched £3,375,000 or the equivalent of 4.1 million US dollars.

This far exceeded the upper estimate of 1.2 million and tripled the previous record price at an auction by Alex Katz, which is still far from the prices of his American colleagues such as Tom Wesselmann or Andy Warhol.

Many Alex Katz exhibitions have been dedicated to his talent in recent years. Among others at the Serpentine Gallery in London, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao or the Metropolitan Museum in New York. 2019 in Munich/Germany at Museum Brandhorst; Daegu/Korea Daegu Kunstmuseum, Paris/France Musée de L'Orangerie. Also GALERIE FRANK FLUEGEL did many shows during the past years with Alex Katz.

In 2020 there will be a new Alex Katz exhibition at the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid/Spain.
The Guggenheim Museum in New York will show an Alex Katz retrospective in 2022.
