Alex Katz's very first prints included wood- and linocuts, but it was not until 1986 that he finally returned to the technique he had used 30 years earlier. This book celebrates and reproduces in detail all of the woodcuts and linocuts that Katz has made since 1951, works that bring out the angular, awkward articulations, emotional ambivalence, and psychological complexity of his best work. All 78 prints are also reproduced in an informative color fold-out insert at the back of the catalogue.
