about the artist

For fifty plus years Katz has painted a series of portraits of his wife, Ada. These portraits have reached an iconic status. As the art historian Irving Sandler wrote in 1998, Ada "is woman, wife mother, muse, model, sociable hostess, myth, icon and New York goddess."
Here is an example of one of his images
