Lot Essay

"Style and appearance are the things I'm more concerned about than what something means. I'd like to have style take the place of content, or the style be the content... I prefer it to be emptied of meaning, emptied of content" –Alex Katz
(A. Katz, quoted in M. Strand, ed., Art of the Real: Nine American Figurative Painters, New York, 1983, pp. 124 and 129).
