Alex Katz:
35 Years of Portraits

April 28, 2012 – June 16, 2012

Barbara Krakow Gallery is pleased to present Alex Katz: 35 Years of Portraits. The exhibition features a selection of Katz’s portraits from the late 1970’s all the way to works that have been printed within the first few months of 2012, all engaged with portraiture.  This fluidity in themes through time is most evident in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston’s current exhibition, ALEX KATZ PRINTS, which runs through July 29.  In addition, Katz’s exhibition at the Museum Ostwall in Dortmund Germany recently closed, yet he has numerous upcoming exhibitions including a solo show at Tate St. Ives that opens on May 19, and “Alex Katz: Maine/New York” which opens on July 14 at Colby College Museum of Art.
