This second edition of the definitive book on artist Wolf Kahn adds his achievements of the past 15 years. A new essay by Karen Wilkin highlights the development of his late style, and a generous selection of paintings and pastels showcases his bold, freewheeling new work. The main text, by Justin Spring, traces Khan’s art and life to 1993. An insightful essay by Louis Finkelstein illuminates the fusion of abstraction and representation in the work.
Kahn’s landscapes evoke a particular sense of place and season, yet they are also universal. His radiant hues, tangy color contrasts, and pervasive sense of light have placed him at the forefront of American representational artists.

4.5/5 Of the few books on Kahn, this is the best currently available. I own the first edition, and this is a slight improvement.
