Alex Katz has always followed his own program. The American artist never followed any trend or style, neither concerning the contents nor the form. Maybe that's why his works have the certain something that could be called an “artistic handwriting”. There are those clear, bright colours, the figures built from generously composed spaces, the contrasts – all this is typically Alex Katz. Alex Katz always portraits beauty, and he always manages to go beneath the formal surface. This is what gives his works their specific quality.
