Description

Alex Katz paints the world around him with a certain candor and has been doing so for over six decades.

Impala pictures his partner Ada, the subject of many of Katz's works, serenely looking into the distance from the passenger side of a car with a picturesque vista looming in the of a car with a picturesque vista looming in the background.
