Historical Description

Alex Katz Yellow Flags 2, 2018 is a beautiful example of the artist’s floral work. Katz was often inspired to create works featuring bright and colorful blooms, and along with his figural work, this has become one of the hallmarks of his career.

The contrast between bright yellow and green to the inky black is eye catching in its intensity. The composition highlights the saturation of color against darkness, as if the flowers are lit by a spotlight in the middle of the night. This work is captivating and dynamic, with a subtle energy causing your eye to bounce around the composition following the lines of the stems. A beautiful example of Katz’s talent and creativity, Yellow Flags 2, 2018 is a wonderful and visually pleasing work of art.
