Alex Katz is an American painter, sculptor and graphic artist who became famous for his figurative paintings. His works are immediately recognizable by their colorful, two-dimensional style, which was created as a reaction to the Abstract Expressionism of the 1950s. Although Alex Katz is widely recognized for his role as a precursor of the Pop Art movement, he has avoided being associated with any style or movement throughout his career.
Galerie Frank Fluegel has had the artist Alex Katz in its program from the very beginning and has also pointed out for years that he was long completely underestimated in Europe. Now that he is over 90 years old, his work is increasingly coming into focus.
Four major exhibitions have been dedicated to his talent in recent years. Among others, the FAZ / supplement Madame, the British "Telegraph" and the "Interview" Magazine in Paris included interviews with him.
Like Picasso, Katz develops more and more creativity as he grows older and seems unstoppable in the creation of new works.
Alex Katz will be 93 years old on 24 July 2020.
A new world record for a painting by the American artist Alex Katz was set at the Phillips Auction House in London on Wednesday, October 2, 2019. The painting Blue Umbrella I from 1972 fetched £3,375,000 or the equivalent of 4.1 million US dollars.
This far exceeded the upper estimate of 1.2 million and tripled the previous record price at an auction by Alex Katz, which is still far from the prices of his American colleagues such as Tom Wesselmann or Andy Warhol.
Many Alex Katz exhibitions have been dedicated to his talent in recent years. Among others at the Serpentine Gallery in London, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao or the Metropolitan Museum in New York. 2019 in Munich/Germany at Museum Brandhorst; Daegu/Korea Daegu Kunstmuseum, Paris/France Musée de L'Orangerie. His works of art hang together with Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Basquiat or KAWS in museums worldwide.
In 2020 there will be a new Alex Katz exhibition at the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid/Spain. The Guggenheim Museum in New York will show a Alex Katz retrospective in 2022.

To place a bid, enter the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Artspace will accept a bid at the next increment, and save any excess amount as a maximum bid. If you are outbid, we will continue bid on your behalf up to your maximum bid.
Bidding increments increase at the following intervals:
You will receive an email confirmation of your bid and when you are outbid.
If you are the winning bidder, you will be contacted 48 hours after of the close of the auction.
Every bid submitted is treated as a maximum bid. You should always bid the maximum you are willing to spend for a work, though this does not necessarily mean you will pay that price. As the auction unfolds, we will increase your bid by increments to ensure you remain the highest bidder. If the winning amount is less than your maximum bid, you will pay the current increment. If your maximum bid no longer exceeds the current bid, you will receive an outbid notification email, and have the option to bid again.
In the case of multiple bidders placing the same maximum bid, the first person to place the maximum amount takes precedence as the highest bid until another bidder exceeds the maximum amount.
For Artspace Auctions winning bidders are charged a 15% Buyer's Premium on top of the hammer price. For Artspace Benefit Auctions, Buyer's Premiums are not applied. If they are, this will be clearly noted. Purchases made from all auctions, including benefit auctions, are subject to sales tax.
Winning bidders will be contacted within 48 hours to arrange shipping and to provide final price including commission, shipping, and taxes and duties when applicable. Promotion codes cannot be applied to auction works.
All our frames are manufactured in the USA, using eco-friendly & sustainably sourced engineered hardwood for durability and a uniform finish that is free of defects. Frames are available in Black or White Satin and Honey Pecan.
All prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Alpha Cellulose matboard, using an acid-free linen tape. The mat's surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conservation quality foam-core mounting board that will keep the work safe from deterioration over time. Artworks with a deckled or decorative edges will be floated on the matboard, with acrylic spacers to separate the art from the glazing. All mounting is fully reversible, without any potential damage to the art.
All of our frames come with picture quality .090 mm plexiglass, which blocks 66% of UV to prevent color fading from exposure to light, keeping your art protected for years to come. It is now considered the industry standard for artists, museums and galleries throughout the world.
