Quote of the day: Alex Katz
“I think you should have some hostility toward the public. I painted nice pictures in the ’50s, and people didn’t like them. So I thought, ‘I’m going to stick a big face of my wife in your living room and it’s going to kill everything, and you’re going to have to throw out some furniture.’ ”
Artist Alex Katz on not giving the public what they (think) they want, FT (reg req).
