If you’d like to have your portrait painted by Alex Katz, the master will show himself to be demanding or—more precisely, let’s say—animated by a keen business sense.
“It’s demanding work, so he [or she] should already own two of major works by me and pay double for the portrait.” Nowadays, the artist paints about 50 works per year.
I met Alex Katz one evening in February 2014 in Paris, in his Place des Vosges hotel room.
Born in 1928, the Pop Art painter looks incredibly youthful and cool. He smiles a lot, and marks a pause to watch you react to something provocative he’s just said.
