Alex Katz: and the Japanese Print

26 October - 26 November 2011

In 2011 The Fine Art SOciety Contemporary presented an exhibition of prints featuring the work of internationally acclaimed American artist, Alex Katz alongside nineteenth and early twentieth century Japanese prints of portraits, figures and waterscapes. This exhibition offered an insight into Katz’s printmaking output, examining the influence of Japanese prints that he has often cited as a source of inspiration. The exhibition premiered a new iconic print of ‘Ada’, his long-term muse and wife, using the ‘full-colour’ Japanese woodblock technique.
