In Rose Bud, 2019, Alex Katz beautifully depicts two rose buds in brilliant pinks and reds on a simple blue-gray background. This work has many of the hallmarks of Katz’s iconic artistic style. He uses bright saturated colors and flat blocks of color, reminiscent of Japanese woodblock printing techniques, which have been very influential to Katz throughout his career. The close cropping of the composition create an intimacy and emphasize the relationship between the viewer and the subject of the work. Katz painted many works of flowers of all sorts, and experimented with color, lighting and cropping in these compositions. This work is incredibly charming, with the warm pink blooms contrasting perfectly with the cool green of their stems and the pale background.
