Additional Details

Like many artists in his generation, Bob Kuhn started out as an illustrator, contributing renderings of animals to books and periodicals. In 1970, he turned his attention exclusively to easel painting and eventually inherited the mantle worn by Wilhelm Kuhnert and Carl Rungius as the finest interpreter of big game animals. Kuhn developed a unique mature style combining the action he was already famous for with a way of arranging colors and employing a battery of strokes to create painterly compositions that harmonize animal and habitat. Kuhn balanced a desire to capture his subjects accurately with a flair for design that transmits the essential cycle of action and stillness in the natural world. This lot is illustrated in The Story of Leanin’ Tree on page 285. A copy of the book will accompany this lot
