Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wolf Kahn is one of this country's best-loved contemporary artists. His brilliantly colored landscapes in oil have placed him at the forefront of American representational art. Many collectors equally prize his luminous pastels, the subject of this delightful new book.<P>With more than 100 colorplates illustrating his brief, breezy essays, Kahn reveals his distinctive approach to working in this medium. Offering a rare glimpse into the way an artist thinks and why he works the way he does, Kahn's musings about the creative process bring a number of key issues to life for artists, students, and art lovers, and make the book a valuable supplementary text for pastel classes. Including an introduction by noted art historian Barbara Novak, this book will be eagerly received by Kahn's devoted following.

FromTechToArt, January 4, 2010 (view all comments by FromTechToArt)
I saw it on an endcap, and it sucked me in like a cyclonic vac. Who was this person and how could he draw trees in such crazy colors? In the 0x's I went from just-left-high-tech to almost-done-with-BFA. Wolf Kahn was the catalyst to switch from 3D to 2D. Got to study with him in 06 in NYC. Saw him again at an opening in 07. Started my BFA in 08. Will finish in 11. I don't do pastels, but I love this book. Used to take it to bed with me!
