Wolf Kahn


WOLF KAHN is one of the most important colorists working in America today. With pastels and oils, Kahn creates vivid scenes that excite the senses. He plays with the curves and wisps of natural landscapes and sometimes inserts the angular lines of man-made structures. Kahn experiments with color and season in a way that is abstract, refreshing, and all his own. Wolf Kahn is an influential modern landscape painter whose work has infused the landscape tradition with a new vitality. The unique blend of Realism and the formal discipline of Color Field painting sets the work of Wolf Kahn apart. Kahn is an artist who embodies the synthesis of his modern abstract training with Hans Hofmann, with the palette of Matisse, Rothko's sweeping bands of color, and the atmospheric qualities of American Impressionism. It is precisely this fusion of color, spontaneity and representation that has produced such a rich and expressive body of work.

Wolf Kahn exhibits at galleries and museums across North America. Selected museum collections include Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY, Museum of Fine Arts,Boston, MA, Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles County Museum, Los Angeles, CA.
