    Alex Katz’s "Winter Landscape 2" combines the painterly qualities of Abstract Expressionism with the flatness of Pop to depict a specific moment of quiet observation that is as atmospheric as it is emblematic of the moment it captures. With bold, confident paint handling and startling simplicity, Katz distills a universal experience into an image that appears both personal and anecdotal.
