Artwork of the Week: Porch

Alex Katz, Porch, 1958
oil on masonite, 28 x 28"

Happy Labor Day! Hope you are relaxing, wherever it might be. Did I tell you guys we have a screened in back porch? I plan on putting my feet up out there for at least some portion of the day. With a cool drink in hand. Ahhh yes. 

This beautiful pastel-y painting by Alex Katz is one I'd never seen before. The artist is mostly known for his striking, monochromatic portraits of friends and family, but this early work of his depicts a calm, pleasant light-filled space that I would love to spend some time in today.
