In 1948, while enrolled in an illustration course at Cooper Union, Alex Katz created 27 pen and ink drawings inspired by Herman Melville’s 1851 novel Moby-Dick. The artist’s whimsical illustrations capture the enormity of the work while expressing the early formation of his now highly recognisable style, celebrated for its elegant formal economy. Katz later returned to maritime motifs with a series of work based on his trips to Maine that began in the mid-1950s.
