In-class preview of pastels:
Blog assignment due 4/21:
Read the review linked above and the article linked below. Within the site below, watch the two videos (note especially, in the second video, the path of his career and his comments about painting.)
In your comments, include the following:
What do you find as the most interesting art historical fact and why?
Does his personal history in Nazi Germany and “Kindertransport” refugee change the way you view and interpret his work?
What insights about painting your own landscapes do you gain from listening to him, looking at, and reading about his paintings ?
In your sketchbook, do a 1 hour landscape, observed from real life, inspired by Wolf Kahn’s work. Try to convey the facts, essence, and spirit of the place.
This will be the plan for your painting when you get back. (You may want a back up photo for when you paint although most of your painting will come from the preparatory drawing.)
