Discover the pop style of American painter Alex Katz

Alex Katz (born 1927) is highly recognisable and admired by a younger generation of artists and the public. His elegant paintings present a modern, quintessentially American take on the classical themes of portraiture, landscape, figure studies, marine scenes and flowers. A group of works selected from the ARTIST ROOMS collection, this exhibition will provide viewers with the opportunity to see a substantial body of his work. The display will showcase works including Pansies 1967 and West Palm Beach 1997.

ARTIST ROOMS is a collection of international modern and contemporary art jointly owned by Tate and National Galleries of Scotland. ARTIST ROOMS was established through The d’Offay Donation in 2008, with the assistance of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, Art Fund and the Scottish and British Governments.
