Rare hand signed press photo of Alex Katz’ painting “Four Nudes” from 2011.
“Realist painting has to do with leaving out a lot of detail. I think my painting can be a little shocking in all that it leaves out. But what happens is that the mind fills in what’s missing. (…) Painting is a way of making you see what I saw.” – Alex Katz, cited in The Irish Times, July 19, 2017
