Cool PaintingAlex Katz, born in New York in 1927, numbers among the most important exponents of US contemporary art. For the 95th birthday of Alex Katz, the ALBERTINA Museum presents a comprehensive tribute to this artist from the rich holdings of its collection. Ever since then, Katz has been considered—analog to Miles Davis and “cool jazz”—the inventor of “cool painting.”
On the occasion of the exhibition "Alex Katz. Cool Painting" a 224 pages strong German and English language exhibition catalogue is published.
