Tayloe Piggott Gallery is pleased to present selected paintings by prominent Color Field painter Wolf Kahn. Reflecting upon the past two decades of the artist's celebrated career, this exhibition highlights painting from 2000 to 2017. A public reception to honor the exhibition's opening will be held on Friday, February 16 from 6 to 8pm.
Regarded as one of the preeminent colorists of the last century, Wolf Kahn combines Realism and Color Field painting to create work at the vanguard of American representational art. Working from nature and often depicting New England landscapes in his compositions, Kahn's subject matter is illuminated with his exceptional use of color. This work will be displayed alongside the distinguished work of fellow artist and wife, Emily Mason.
Kahn's work is included in numerous private and public collections: the Metropolitan Museum of Art; the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art; and the Jewish Museum; the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston; The Los Angeles County Museum of Art; and both the Hirshhorn Museum and the National Museum of American Art in Washington, DC. 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 and a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship.
