As the Colby College Museum of Art’s contribution to The Maine Print Project, Alex Katz: Woodcuts and Linocuts takes a retrospective look at the artist’s work in these print media. Katz has been a regular summer resident in Maine since he first attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in the early 1950s. Katz’s woodcuts and linocuts, usually composed of one, two, or three layers of color, exhibit the qualities of directness, simplification, and distillation that characterize his work across media.
