About The Work

At the same time that the New York Abstract Expressionists set out to their represent inner emotions, Alex Katz decided to concentrate on appearance, and created large-scale portraits, landscapes, and still lifes painted with simple lines in bold, dramatic colours. Why try to paint what's on the inside, Katz might well have asked, when what's on the outside is so interesting? For this work, Katz continues his fascination with flora, accentuating the play of light and shadow on the violets’ petals.
