  • Wolf Kahn  (+)

    Biography : Wolf Kahn is one of the most important colorists working in America today. Born in Stuttgart, Germany in 1927, Wolf Kahn immigrated to the United States by way of England in 1940. In 1945 he graduated from the High School of Music and Art in New York after which he spent time in the Navy. Under the GI Bill he studied with the well-known teacher and abstract expressionist Hans Hoffman, becoming Hofmann's studio assistant. In 1950 he enrolled in the University of Chicago from which he graduated in 1951 with a BA. Having completed his baccalaureate degree in only one year, Kahn was determined to become a professional artist. He and other former Hofmann students established The Hansa, a cooperative gallery where he had his first one man show. In 1956 he joined the Grace Borgenicht Gallery where he exhibited regularly until 1995. Kahn has received a Fulbright Scholarship, a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, and an Award in Art from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He is a member of the National Academy of Design, as well as the American Academy of Arts and Letters and has recently completed an appointment to the New York City Art Commission. The unique blend of Realism and the formal discipline of Color Field painting sets the work of Wolf Kahn apart. Kahn is an artist who embodies the synthesis of his modern abstract training with Hans Hofmann, with the palette of Matisse, Rothko's sweeping bands of color, and the atmospheric qualities of American Impressionism. It is precisely this fusion of color, spontaneity and representation that has produced such a rich and expressive body of work. Wolf Kahn regularly exhibits at galleries and museums across North America. Selected museum collections include Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, D.C.; and Los Angeles County Museum, Los Angeles, CA.

  • Jamie Wyeth  (+)

    Biography : A third-generation artist linked to the Wyeth dynasty, Jamie Wyeth, son of Andrew Wyeth, has made his own mark by depicting compelling Maine landscapes, dignified wildlife, and even portraits of famed figures, all in his unique style of contemporary realism. Painting in a combination of mediums, Wyeth creates images with stark contrasts and tactile surfaces, with a portrait-like intensity. Wyeth has drawn on his surroundings for subject matter throughout his career, depicting landscapes and domesticated and wild animals near his farm in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania as well as on Monhegan Island in Maine. He has a knack for conveying textures, such as fur and feathers, with immense detail, and capturing the physiognomy of his subjects. Wyeth is a member of the National Academy of Design, the American Water Color Society, the National Space Institute, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Examples of Jamie Wyeth's work can be found in major public collections across the United States, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; the National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C.; and the Farnsworth Art Museum, Rockland, ME.
