Tampa Museum of Art

Alex Katz: Black and White

On view February 23 through May 29, 2017

The Tampa Museum of Art will present a survey of black and white works by the legendary artist Alex Katz (American, b. 1927). An artist of international renown, this exhibition features Katz’s signature portraits of family and friends, renderings of Maine’s countryside, and ephemeral still lifes. The stark contrasts in light and shadow, as well as the emphasis on line and form, illustrate the beauty of Katz’s reductive black and white landscapes and figurative work. A select group of color works will illustrate the relationship between Katz’s vibrant palette and the graphic quality of his black and white prints.
