Biography John Kane
One of the first folk artists in America to gain national reputation, John Kane painted in a style popularized by the French painter, Henri Rousseau (1844-1910). Kane's work is of everyday subject matter and lacks three-dimensional perspective, anatomical realism, and subtleties of tone or atmosphere. But it is simple and fresh in the naive folk tradition.
He did not begin painting until age sixty seven, when he submitted his paintings to the 1927 juried Carnegie International exhibition and received a special Purchase Award. A year later, he became a member of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh.
From that time, he had his work widely exhibited including at the Harvard Society of Contemporary Art in 1929, The Toledo Museum
