Catalogue raisonné of prints by Alex Katz Idioma: English Páginas: 208 Medidas: 25.00 x 31.00 cm As a means of clarifying or condensing his pictorial compositions, Alex Katz s prints occupy an outstanding place in his entire body of work. The artist is not only motivated by the opportunity to distribute the results of his work in larger numbers, but also by being able to achieve the best visual effects by means of the tenacious, innovative exploitation of print technologies. In the course of his artistic career, Katz has exhausted all of the possibilities: from traditional craftsmanship to state-of-the-art reproduction processes. Be it by tracing existing source materials, practicing strict simplification and graphic design, studying nature and the fleeting qualities of light, or adapting modern photographic or filmic vision Katz s visual themes always make reference to visible reality.

Reseña del editor:

Alex Katz's clear planes of color and simplicity of line are famously well suited to printmaking. For Katz himself, the medium also holds the appeal of distributing his work in greater quantity. His embrace of printmaking was consolidated in the mid-1960s, and led to a voracious exploration of print technologies, including the latest state-of-the-art reproduction processes. Each of these elicits different qualities from Katz's artistic vocabulary: woodcut, for example, yields an emotional tenor not commonly seen elsewhere in his oeuvre, as the traces left by chisel and burn are left legible and accepted by the artist. However, the primary effect of Katz's prints is to enhance his art as a coolly Baudelairean "painting of modern life." Though he frequently works with professional printing companies, Katz often undertakes the full run of manual labor himself. This volume assesses Katz's history with printmaking and editions, including collaborations with writers.
