Amanda -Alex Katz
This piece is called Amanda by artist Alex Katz. It was done in 1973 and is oil on canvas. I really like this piece because I think it is a really beautiful depiction of a little girl. It reminds me of the American girl dolls and the picture of them in their story books that would come with each doll when you received it. I also liked this because I like the bold orange background and how her hat is blue so the colors are flowing and it makes her eyes pop more. It is also kind of creepy to me because it looks scarily similar to one of my friends from home. I also think the way it is painted shows the personality of the little girl and her happiness through the painting.
