Description

An early example of Kahn's Abstract Expressionist work which was exhibited with his first dealer in New York in 1959, the Grace Borgenicht Gallery, 1018 Madison Avenue, New York, NY. (the label is on the verso).

Wolf Kahn studied with Hans Hofmann in Provincetown in 1946 and 47 and became a close friend. In the late 1950's he did a number of paintings which managed to capture the strange light and atmoshere that can occur on a foggy morning on the water, be it Venice, Provincetown or the Hudson River.

This painting was purchased at the 1959 exhibition by a family member.
