Wolf Kahn has painted and drawn New England landscapes since his 20s. During our current exhibition, Wolf Kahn: A 50 Year Survey, visitors are enjoying his perspective on coastal Maine, Massachusetts, and rural Vermont. He has owned property in Vermont for decades and spends every summer and early fall there before returning to his home in New York City for the winter. He paints and draws vistas and structures, mainly barns, both on his property and that of his surrounding neighbors. There are a few barns, roads, copses and views he returns to repeatedly, and one striking example are his paintings and pastels of his studio. We are currently showing three works depicting the view from Kahn's Vermont home down the hill towards his studio, and each captures it quite differently. A colorist to the core, he is able to show us the same image made with completely different hues and we believe him every time. Please enjoy these three works, one in pastel and two in oil.
The exhibition will remain on view through May 12, 2018. View the exhibition catalogue here. See more available works by Wolf Kahn here.
