Wolf Kahn, whose lyrical and beautiful landscapes are among America's best-loved contemporary paintings, has traveled the world in pursuit of his art. In this charming book, he describes his travels across the United States, illustrating his adventures with the works he created on his journeys. In a series of short essays, each only a few paragraphs in length, Kahn recalls the places in America where he has traveled to work as well as the problems those diverse locations presented to him as an artist, and how he solved them. In one section, he writes of the difficulty of capturing the dark tones and rough textures of the sea, with the special light effects that signal a given time of day. In another he writes of the gradations of color and value density in a bramble thicket in the Maine woods. Other short essays are simply personal memories, charming and anecdotal reminiscences of life on the road. This is delightful and refreshing look at the world of a painter, seen through the candid and unpretentious eyes of one of America's most popular artists, is accompanied by 100 of Kahn's superbly reproduced oil paintings and pastels. John Updike's introduction, a tribute to an admired friend, is an added bonus.
