Alex Katz has single?handedly invented a new, essential form of painting for our times. He demonstrates the same kind of clarity and directness in his writings as in his art. Ranging from his 1961 essay "Brand New & Terrific" to interviews with artist colleagues Francesco Clemente and Richard Prince, this is an essential collection of Katz texts.
