Wolf Kahn – A Spring Landscape

“Keep the childlike vision and remain true to your ideas.”

-Wolf Kahn

Wolf Kahn was born on October 4th 1927 in Germany.  He is a German-born American painter and began drawing at the age of four.  Wolf Kahn is known for his work in pastels and oil paint.  He combines realism landscapes with Colour Field theory. He currently lives in New York City and during the summer and autumn he lives on a hillside farm in Vermont.

The students created their own landscapes in the style of Wolf Kahn. They learned how to mix watercolours using a wet-into-wet technique.
