F:32 X 26 S:29 X 24, Oil on Board,Katz was born in 1932 in Galicia, Poland. At age 13 he studied under Dr. Hans Fokler of the Munich Academy. After World War II, he lived for a while in a displaced persons camp, where he earned a diploma in carpentry, and he said later that toilet paper was his "diploma in art."He moved to the United States in 1949, when he took a job in carpentry while maintaining a sideline with his art.[1] While working on his unpublished Dictionary of Color in 1956, he decided to try painting with his palette knife instead of his brushes.[1] After some time he also began experimenting with the use of rags; when he ran out of rags he turned to toilet tissue.[1] As of February 2007, over his career he had painted more than 280,000 paintings
