Welcome to Madrid
For the first time in Spain, the museum will be presenting a retrospective on the American painter Alex Katz (born New York, 1927), one of the key figures in the history of 20th century American art and a forerunner of Pop Art who continues active today
The exhibition will include around thirty large-format oil paintings, accompanied by various studies, offering a survey of the artist’s habitual themes: his individual, double and group portraits together with his distinctive flowers and sweeping landscapes painted with bright colours and flat backgrounds.
Curated by Guillermo Solana and Tomàs Llorens, the museum’s artistic director and emeritus artistic director, respectively, the exhibition has the support of the artist and his studio, both of which are closely following the implementation of this project.
