Alex Katz is considered one of the fathers of Pop Art and is famous for his large-scale depictions of landscapes, flowers, and portraits. In 1946, Katz enrolled at The Cooper Union Art School in Manhattan, New York, NY. After his graduation in 1949, Katz was awarded a scholarship for a summer study at the Skowhegan School for Painting and Sculpture in Maine, a grant that he would renew the following summer. Katz had his first solo exhibition at Roko Gallery in New York City in 1954, and in 1986 the Whitney Museum of American Art held his first retrospective. His works are included in the public collections of the Art Institute of Chicago; The Museum of Modern Art (MoMa), New York; the National Gallery, Washington, D.C.; Tate Modern, London; and among others.
