The reductiveness of Alex Katz's images gives them an impersonal quality. The sleek, pristine surfaces of aquatint in "Swimmer" contribute to the perfection of the figure's form and the ease of his motion. Yet this technical smoothness limits both the expression of the artist's feelings and our access to the sitter's mind.Primary Object ClassificationPrintCollection AreaModern and ContemporaryRights
