      In a new book, Looking at Art with Alex Katz, which was released earlier this week by Laurence King Publishing, Katz discusses the work which has most deeply resonated with him, taking readers on a journey through art history. Described as a “private museum tour”. While he was a student at the Cooper Union, Alex Katz enrolled in a class on illustration. The artist had first read Herman Melville’s novel Moby-Dick around the age of 13, and he found himself returning to the text in connection with assignments for this course.
