Alex Katz "Women"

Saturday December 10, 4:00 PM - Sunday February 5

Craven Contemporary 4 Fulling Lane Kent Barns Kent, CT

Craven Contemporary is pleased to announce its newest show - Alex Katz -"Women". It's a must-see show this holiday season.

Katz, aged 95, works in New York City and Maine and is one of the most recognizable and enduring artists of our time. The show brings together a dozen female portraits by the artist, including many of his beloved wife and muse Ada, from the 1970s to the present day.

Similar to his florals and landscapes, Katz has a distinctive approach to painting the human face – large scale, pared down, and cropped, the works combine elements of realism and abstraction at the same time. As Katz himself describes his work “part of what I’m about is seeing how I can paint the same thing differently instead of different things the same way”.

Alex Katz Women is timed to coincide with Katz’s major and long overdue retrospective show which opened at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City in October 2022. His work is also included in over 100 public collections including the Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of Modern Art, Smithsonian Institute, Art Institute of Chicago, Tate Gallery in London and more.

Gallery Hours: Saturdays 11 am - 5 pm and Sundays 12 pm - 5 pm.
