Timothy Taylor at 15 Carlos Place, Mayfair, placed Chance, a cutout sculpture by artist Alex Katz, in the Tadao Ando-designed water feature outside The Connaught Hotel and adjacent to the gallery.
The sculpture will remain in the water for the day Tuesday. Following which, the work will be available to view at Timothy Taylor (next door at 15 Carlos Place) until 3 September.
The realistic figures of bathers, made from porcelain enamel on steel and mounted on a polished stainless steel base, are part of an extensive body of work Katz has continued to grow since 1959.
Timothy Taylor has represented Alex Katz in the UK since 2002 and is exhibiting the sculpture in celebration of Alex Katz: Quick Light at the Serpentine Gallery. The exhibition runs until 11 September, 2016.
