The Green Cap
I was instantly drawn to the color palette represented in this piece (it has given me some fashion inspiration also … red and turquoise striped top, hellllo!). I am not usually a fan of portraits, but the artist makes this print less about the human form, and more about the distinct line quality, bold color, and thoughtful composition.
I love the classic nature of this print, to me it resembles a 60′s Vogue ad. I enjoy pieces that create beauty in the most ordinary of activities and Katz definitely captures the figure in a glowing state. I can only hope I look half as stylish at the beach in my white button down + aviator combo.
I hope you were able to catch this exhibit while it was on display, if not the MFA has done an outstanding job of capturing the prints in a slideshow.
