Alex Katz: Seasons

The Museum of Modern Art, New York
4 July – 8 September
Alex Katz will present four monumental paintings at the Museum of Modern Art’s Atrium this July. The artist’s Seasons series chronicles the changing of seasons, depicting the vibrant colours of spring, summer, and fall to the stark palette of winter. These works belong to a new suite of more than 100 paintings created by Katz in his New York studio since 2022. The artist draws inspiration from his immediate surroundings, whether a lone tree encountered on Houston Street on the way home from the cinema, or the lush landscape of Lincolnville, Maine, where Katz has spent his summers since 1954. "The sensation of colour is what I wanted," he says. "It's the sensation of seeing."
