A few years ago I was at the Whitney Museum in New York, browsing through their bookstore.  I came across the exhibition catalog for Alex Katz Paints Ada, a 2007  show at the Jewish Museum.  This book explores the subject of Ada as muse for her husband’s paintings.  Ada is an elegant subject, and I love the idea of the artist’s wife as muse.  Visit the Jewish Museum’s website to see several of Katz’s portrayals of Ada.
