Alex Katz

1927 (New York) –

Koch, O’Hara and Schuyler were fellow-members of the so-called New York School group of poets and artists. Held, Rivers and Pearlstein were lasting friends as artists, as was Porter, who said he continued to learn from him: Close was another artist friend. Among the people he collaborated with were Koch (on sets for a play), Ashbery, Padgett and Taylor (whose dance group Katz worked with extensively).
