Brand-New & Terrific: Alex Katz in the 1950s

Diana Tuite
With essays by Katy Siegel, Richard Shiff, and Eva Diaz

Coming of age in the 1950s, Alex Katz set out to reinvent representational painting by applying lessons learned from postwar abstraction. This book is the first survey of his work from this momentous decade, one in which Katz began to paint outdoors, innovated with collages, created the cutout, and met Ada del Moro, his wife and muse. A fascinating study of a young artist laying the groundwork for an astonishingly successful career, this is the catalogue to the exhibition Brand-New & Terrific: Alex Katz in the 1950s, on view at the Cleveland Museum of Art from April 30 to August 6, 2017.
