Just became a member because am interested in Wolf Kahn's approach. Loved "Get rid of the brush stroke and just let things happen." That's how I paint portraits; but am new to landscape painting. Thank you, Mr. Kahn.

Comeback: The NewArtTV studio visit with Wolf Kahn, Part 2 of 2.

Born in Stuttgart in 1927, the son of the conductor of the Stuttgart Philharmonic, Wolf Kahn left Nazi Germany in 1939 and in 1940 joined his father and siblings in New York, where he became a student at the High School of Music and Art. He later enrolled in the studio school of Hans Hofmann and became studio assistant to the renowned abstract expressionist.

Steeped in Hofmann's modernist theories, Kahn nonetheless developed a style of landscape painting that owes as much to the impressionists as it does to abstract expressionism. His vision impaired at age 80, Kahn is now making paintings that have never been more abstract, gestural, or luminous.
