This retrospective study is the definitive survey. The author, a distinguished art critic, teacher, and historian, has known Katz almost as long as the artist has been painting, and the two worked together to select the paintings, prints, and sculptural cutouts that are reproduced here. Sandler traces the artist's upbringing, his education in art, and his influences among other visual artists, writers, and especially poets.
