Biography  
Bob Kuhn

    KOON    click to hear


Selected wildlife painter of the year in 1998 by the Friends of Western Art in Tucson, Arizona, Robert Kuhn was born in Buffalo, New York in 1920, and was educated at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York.  He was an illustrator for most of the top outdoor magazines during the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, and moved on to gallery work in 1970.

A Wildlife Art article, September 2001, labelled Kuhn as "one of the last direct descendants from the Golden Age of Illustration...(a period) that produced the most competent legion of realist painters this continent has ever known."

In 2001, the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming held an unprecedented retrospective spanning Kuhn's 60-year career.
