WOLF KAHN: Paintings and Pastels, 2010 - 2020
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.
By William C. Agee and Sasha Nicholas
The most definitive and up-to-date book on the vibrant paintings and pastels by this popular modern master, which now serves as a memorable tribute to his artistic legacy.
During the last decade of his long and accomplished career, Kahn traded in the often-lyrical palette of his earlier landscapes for an increasingly brash and assertive chromatic vision–evidenced in electric hues ranging from acid yellow and hazard orange to saturated thalo blue. His late large-scale oils, depicting his favored subjects of barns and tree-lined fields and rivers, abound with visual energy. Art historian Sasha Nicholas puts Kahn in context with other artists and situates his late work within his broader career. William Agee, who met with Kahn for several interviews, discusses his process and most recent paintings. An illustrated chronology, with little-seen personal images, offers additional insights into the life and career of this renowned modern master.
