It would be difficult to understand painting over the last three decades without taking into account the fundamental presence of Alex Katz. His work not only provides an essential frame of reference for some of the most significant artists on the scene today, but his greatest merit has been to free pictoral research by making it independent of all objective and sociological demands, as well as every form of extreme psychologism. Eighties artists were also partly indebted to him, as shown by the work of Eric Fischl and David Salle.
