"Katz's distinct voice of midcentury American Impressionism pleases on every page. Incorporating still lifes, landscapes, and portraiture, the collection highlights the congruence of brilliance in the subdued tones of Katz's work and the tranquility in even his brightest uses of color . . . Those interested in art history and fashions of the period or in Katz's method and evolution...will find the included essays informative, illuminative, and enjoyable, and all will be captivated by the scenes, patterns, and people featured in Alex Katz's inceptive works."

"The paintings of friends, family and familiar places in Brand-New & Terrific: Alex Katz in the 1950s, at the Colby College Museum of Art, Waterville, Maine, are no longer brand-new--they were made more than a half-century ago, when Katz was, at most, in his early 30s--but they're still terrific. Then, when Abstract Expressionism dominated, their figuration seemed transgressive. Now, what's most striking is the lively evidence of Mr. Katz's hand. The personality and vigor of these youthful pictures made us reconsider the deadpan images that sustain Mr. Katz's reputation today."
