Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present Summertime, a selection of prints by internationally acclaimed artist Alex Katz. The exhibition spans six decades of Katz's career and includes exquisitely composed aquatints from his portfolio Small Cuts, a vintage lithograph Dog at Ducktrap, as well as a selection of recent prints. Katz captures his subjects with an elegance and subtlety creating a theme that he himself describes as "totally American." His compositions of color fields create luminous environments that embody leisure and reminisce on a scape of an endless summer.
Appearing on the American artistic scene at the end of the 1950's, Katz's representational figures and environments became influential to Pop Art and subsequent art movements. Katz's work has been in nearly 200 solo exhibitions internationally since 1954. Alex Katz's work can be found in numerous public collections including The Art Institute of Chicago, The Brooklyn Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The National Gallery of Art, and The Whitney Museum of American Art.
The reception for this exhibition will take place on Saturday, June 29 from 6:00-8:00 pm.
