Katz in full bloom: a concise overview of his floral motifs. Flowers are a favored subject in the recent paintings of American artist Alex Katz (born 1924). After noticing the dynamism that blooming flowers brought to his group portraits, the artist homed in on the flowers themselves, working in nature to directly capture the light and atmosphere that lend them their bright colors. This volume accompanies the first exhibition of Katz's flower paintings in Asia, held at Thaddaeus Ropac, Seoul, and features previously unseen works from the artist's flower series as well as new portraits, whose subjects are depicted in botanical settings.
