Alex and Anna

March 2, 2010

One of my dreams is to have a portrait done by Alex Katz. Of course it’ll never happen — I guess that’s why it’s a dream. Or else I would have said it was a “goal”. Anyway…

The 83 year old artist is known for his light filled, simple portraits, and many illustrious names have sat before him. One of his most recent is none other than Anna Wintour, who by the way, has never sat for a portrait before this. She looks serene and pensive, not to mention twenty years younger. I also like that she’s not wearing her signature shades.

Katz always makes his subjects look beautiful and I think this is a wonderful portrait — I do have one burning question though: What is Anna wearing for this momentous occasion?! Looks like a Chanel tweed to me…

If you’re hopping across the pond soon, Alex Katz will be showing at the Timothy Taylor Gallery in London till April 9. Admission is free.
