American artist Alex Katz is primarily known for his portraiture that synthesizes a kind of color field abstraction with realism; however, nature is a subject the artist has depicted consistently since the early 1950s. White Impatiens was created after the artist's series of paintings that depict a range of flowers. The brushstrokes of the green leaves that seemingly float amidst the flowers over the black background reveal the print's painterly origins, and is among the artist's recent and large screenprints that have become increasingly popular.
