Price on Request
Alex Katz Sunset 1, 2022 is a delightful and serene work from the renowned figurative artist. Katz, who commonly represents his subjects in deliberate, posed fashion, chooses to showcase a more candid look at the woman in this work. She looks onto the viewer as if surprised by their surveillance. Her mouth is slightly open as if about to address the viewer. She is rendered delicately and intentionally, the softness of the color palette reflected by the painterly marks which define her hair, clothing, and features. The yellowy hues of her hair and complexion perfectly complement the purple of her hat and the pink of her lips. The artist creates stark contrast between her fair skin and the deep shadow that obscures the upper portion of her face. From behind this shadow, her gaze pierces that of the viewer, creating an unspoken connection between subject and witness. The result is a stunning work that captures the powerful aura and mystery of the subject.
