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 coming into focus.
Four major exhibitions have been dedicated to his talent in recent years. Among others, the FAZ / supplement Madame, the British "Telegraph" and the "Interview" Magazine in Paris contained interviews with him. Like Picasso, Katz develops more and more creativity as he grows older and seems unstoppable in the creation of new works. Alex Katz will be 93 years old on 24 July 2020.
A new world record for a painting by 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. His works of art hang together with Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Basquiat or KAWS in museums worldwide.
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 a Alex Katz retrospective in 2022.
