Historical Description

Alex Katz Sydney, 1975 is a minimalistic yet charming work and an excellent example of his figurative work. In this work, the artist illustrates a young girl with pleasant features looking directly at the viewer. Her gaze is calm and understanding, and with it she draws the viewer into the work. Her tranquility and the symmetrical composition brings a sense of peace to the work. The rendering of this piece is extremely delicate and showcases the artist’s dexterity and appreciation of the human form. This work contrasts much of Katz’ other work, which is often defined by bold and graphic imagery, by offering more delicate mark-making and sensitivity.

Created in 1975, this pencil on paper is hand-signed by Alex Katz (Brooklyn, 1027 - ) in pencil in the lower right image. This is a unique and original work.
