Wolf Kahn's landscapes record the green song of photosynthesis, the shout of sunlight through turning leaves, the murmur of deep twilight, and the plain speech of the New England farm. Brilliant in color and in conception, they glow like living jewels. Kahn (American; b. Germany, 1927) was at the center of a 1950s movement toward the fusion of abstract and representative art. His affinity for this combination, and his genius for capturing the immediacy of nature's hues, have brought him to the forefront of the American colorist school.
The recipient of Fulbright and Guggenheim awards, Wolf Kahn is a member of the National Academy of Design and of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. His paintings and pastels are in many permanent collections, including those of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In addition to its space for 480 names, addresses, telephone and fax numbers, and email addresses, this elegant address book presents forty of Kahn's subtly luminous creations.
