Since Alex Katz's beginnings, the black dress has been featured in his works. Thematically, this edition takes up one of Katz's most famous early paintings in the Museum Brandhorst, Munich, inventory number UAB 207, which itself also bears the title «The Black Dress». Gracefully reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn in «Breakfast at Tiffany's», the woman depicted wears a black shift dress and is shown from six varying perspectives. Showing nine life-size, hand-pulled silkscreen prints of some of the models Katz has painted over the years, always present in this edition are the yellow background, the leaned-back pose of the models and the wearing of a variation of the «little black dress» with matching black heels. Posing in a relaxed manner, the women look elegant and stylish. As one of Alex Katz's most elaborate edition projects, it contains the central elements of his style: the women, the black dress, the black and yellow colour combination, the seriality and the casualness with which he portrays his models.
