Little Ivy Colby College is home to the largest collection of works by American painter and Pop artist Alex Katz, who has summered in Lincolnville, Maine, since 1954, and who was first introduced to the state when he attended the famous Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 1949. The artist, known for his graphic figurative works (many of which feature his doe-eyed wife, Ada), received an honorary doctorate from the college in 1984, and donated more than 400 works of art (oils, prints, and collages) to the school; it’s the largest collection of his works anywhere. And his artworks are also counted in the permanent collections of the MoMA and Tate Modern in London.
