Alex Katz considers his large landscapes, most of which are painted in Maine, one of the areas he holidays, as environmental paintings. 

With a diluted substance that seems to extend beyond the frame, in Black Brook 18 and Figure in the Woods he fixes the transience of time and the effects of the sun reflecting on the river and through the foliage.

The work of Alex Katz is readily associated with Pop Art, both for its realism and choice of subjects, yet it differs significantly. The apparent simplicity of his pieces reflects a distant Matissian heritage, while simultaneously remaining indissociable from the history of American painting.
