A definitive monograph of more than 300 images by artist Alex Katz-whose trademarks include brightly colored and highly stylized flattened forms, simplification of detail, and alla prima paint application-this book charts the development of Katz's hallmark aesthetic that anticipated the emergence of Pop Art. - Vanity Fair, 11 of Fall's Best Coffee-Table Books

"'Nothing to me is more interesting than being in the studio. I don't have any conflicts, except with myself,' says Alex Katz over the phone from his studio in Manhattan. "New ideas and new things just keep on popping up." The inimitable 93-year-old artist, who has spent the past few months in quarantine working from the countryside in Pennsylvania, has just released a handsome new book with Rizzoli. Edited by his son Vincent, the striking tome features a comprehensive essay by the art critic and Katz specialist Carter Ratcliff and around 300 full-page images of both well known and unpublished paintings alongside photographs, sketches and other ephemera." -GALERIE MAGAZINE.COM

"Having become quite familiar myself with the wide variety of previous perspectives published about the artist's work . . . I was happily surprised to be taken through the artist's life via portraiture in such a rigorously perceptive way as Ratcliff fashions here." -TOM MCGLYNN, BROOKLYN RAIL
