I owe a great debt to the Impressionists, but an equal one to early American modernists. The breadth of these influences may be due to my European origins. However, inspiration comes even more from the changes in seasons, the hours in the day, and one’s available enthusiasm. - Wolf Kahn
New York, New York – Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe is pleased to announce an exhibition of works by Wolf Kahn. The City As Landscape will open on 12 July 2012 and will remain on view through 17 August 2012. A reception for the artist will take place 12 July, between 6:00 and 8:00 PM. The public is welcome.
The City As Landscape offers a glimpse into Wolf Kahn’s New York. Kahn captures his New York experience and shares this imagery with us in the mediums of oil and pastel. He presents us the landscape and landmarks of the city as seen from the windows of his studio and viewed while he peruses his neighborhood on daily walks. In these works, Kahn conjures the beauty, charm and grandeur of New York, “the city of cities.”
Kahn’s work may be found in public collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; The Jewish Museum, New York, NY; The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; The Hirshorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C. and The National Museum of American Art, Washington, D.C.
Kahn is a member of the National Academy of Design and the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the recipient of numerous awards including a Fulbright Scholarship, a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship and an Award in Art from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
The artist lives and works in New York City and Vermont.
Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe is open Tuesday through Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM and by appointment.
