Wolf Kahn: Density & Transparency

June 23 - October 8, 2017

Featuring paintings made over the past decade, this exhibit explores the continuing experimentation, growth, and artistic achievement of a modern American master as he approaches his 90th birthday.

Known for his signature blend of Realism and the formal discipline of Color Field painting, Wolf Kahn was born in Germany in 1927. He emigrated to the United States as a boy, graduated from the High School of Music & Art in New York City, and later studied under Hans Hofmann.┬áKahn’s paintings are in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; The Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; the Hirshhorn Museum and the National Museum of American Art, Washington, D.C.; and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA. In January 2017 Kahn was awarded the International Medal of Arts by the U.S. State Department.

Since 1968 Kahn and his wife, artist Emily Mason, have spent summers living and working in West Brattleboro, Vermont.
