Alex Katz Straw Hat

FRANK FLUEGEL GALERIE with locations in Nuremberg/Germany and Kitzbuehel/Austria is pleased to present new original prints by american Artist Alex Katz. The new original print “Straw Hat 1” and “Halsey” were published in november 2022. In 2022, the first major retrospective of the artist Alex Katz opened on the occasion of his 95th birthday. He now lives and works in New York. Under the title Alex Katz - Gathering, the Guggenheim Museum in New York is showing numerous paintings, drawings and graphics by Alex Katz. We are proud to be able to present this new graphic editions Tree 8 and Tree 10 for the first time in Germany and Austria says Frank Fluegel, the owner of the eponymous gallery. 

Straw Hat 1 is an original graphic by Alex Katz. The square portrait shows a brunette woman. The series was created in Seoul, Korea for the exhibition Flowers at Thaddaeus Ropac. From the numerous oil paintings of Straw Hats, one motif was selected for the graphic edition presented here. Straw Hat 1 is an exemplary work by Alex Katz. In this print, Katz’s clean lines and minimal approach to portraiture are on display. Of course, so does the monochrome background that is typical of his compositions. These portraits have no clear narrative – it is not important for the viewer to know the person or the story behind the artwork. What Alex Katz is trying to emphasize is actually the beauty of the subjects. The use of soft colors and emphasis on fashionable details in his paintings transforms the coldness of sharp lines, lack of detail, and flatness into a work of art that the viewer can enjoy. Straw Hat 1 is a pigment print similar to screen printing.


FRANK FLUEGEL GALERIE with locations in Nuremberg and Kitzbuehel has been focused on high quality originals of pop art, street art and contemporary art for over twenty years.

Many of the offered artworks can be bought and taken away by the collector immediately, because they are in stock. Due to high demand, prices of some artists can be expected to rise. Works can rise in price (this development in value is quite desirable for the investor) and old prices can lose their validity.
