Based on a 1989 painting by Katz.

Alex Katz says of his artistic influences, "I've got as much Old Masters as I do movies." In Green Jacket, Katz paints himself in the tradition of Baroque court portraiture. As the court painter for the Spanish throne in the 17th century, Velazquez cultivated a style of portraiture that displayed the power, pretension and grace valued at that time. Katz contemporizes his self-portrait by depicting himself in his green athletic jacket; clearly an American man of the late twentieth century.
