Alexander Raymond Katz (1895 – 1974)

A WPA muralist, illustrator and modernist painter especially known for paintings with Jewish themes and narrative American scene works, Alexander Katz had a career primarily in Chicago. He also did abstract compositions in black and white and interior theatre decoration.

He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts and in the 1920s, had an art gallery called the Little Gallery, which featured progressive art.

Among his positions in Chicago was serving on the art staff of the "Chicagoan Magazine" and creating posters for the Chicago Civic Opera. He also created posters for the Century of Progress exhibitions, 1933 to 1934.

Katz received much acclaim for his murals at the Century of Progress World's Fair and for other WPA projects during the 1930s. His murals are at the Butler Institute of American Art; the Evansville, Indiana Museum' Madison Illinois Post Office and the Oak Park Illinois Jewish Temple.
