Alex Katz by Ann Beattie.

Text by Ann Beattie with paintings by Alex Katz.
Harry N. Abrams, New York, 1987. 92 pp., 26 color illus., including 4 foldouts, 8¾x10".

In her first book-length work of non-fiction, novelist Ann Beattie has made a personal selection of 26 paintings from which to discuss their painter, Alex Katz. Recently given a retrospective exhibition at the Whitney Museum, Katz has enjoyed a good deal of critical attention, to which Beattie's graceful, penetrating, and engaging portrait is a welcome addition. A critical meeting of two of contemporary art and literature's most interesting figures in a well-designed volume.
