Historical Description

In Homage to Monet (Triptych), 2019, Alex Katz pays tribute to the great Claude Monet in a work clearly inspired by Monet’s Water Lillies. The work is split into three panels, earning the triptych label. The panels feature bright sunny yellow lily pads and six white blooms, two on each panel. While clearly referencing Impressionism and Monet’s work, Katz was also influenced heavily by Japanese woodblock prints. With flat blocks of color and simple composition, Katz incorporates both influences into one captivating work. The contrast between the saturated yellow and the inky black is incredibly eye-catching. Katz creates energy throughout the composition with the positioning of the lily pads, swirling across the panels. Katz puts his own stylistic spin on this iconic work by Monet and the result is a brilliant show of Katz’s creative skill.
