A celebration of the work of the beloved American artist Wolf Kahn (1927-2020), this volume focuses on the vivid colors of his luscious landscapes made in oil and in pastel during the last decade of his life. The last study of Kahn's art to be produced during his lifetime, and prepared in close collaboration with the artist, this book now serves as a memorable tribute to his remarkable talents and legacy.
A refugee from Nazi Germany, Wolf Kahn immigrated to the U.S. in 1940, and after settling in New York City he studied with the influential artist and teacher Hans Hofmann. Kahn's radiant hues, tangy color contrasts, and pervasive sense of light combine realism with the discipline of color field painting and place him at the forefront of American representational artists. This richly illustrated book features a generous selection of paintings and pastels that showcase his bold, freewheeling style and feature a unique blend of realism and abstraction.
