I handled hundreds of Walt Kuhn paintings & drawings and owned part of the Brenda Kuhn estate at one time. I help people all over the country with Walt Kuhn's works and would be happy to give an opinion.

"Head of Virginia" paintingAlbie Davis
Hello, I am looking for information about a painting of my mother, done by Kuhn in 1927, titled "head of Virginia." (Listed in Adams' Walt Kuhn, Painter: His Life and Work. He also did a painting of her in 1927 titled "Girl in Gray Furs," which is now in the Newark Museum, NJ. I could send a copy of that painting, if you are interested. Also, does anyone know of Marieli Kaelin Mandel, who's name appears of the reverse of another Kuhn painting I have. Thanks, Albie Davis.
As far as I know, no one currently has copyrights for works by Walt Kuhn. Perhaps only museums with works in their collection. Brenda Kuhn, the only remaining relative died in 1993 in Portland, Maine. Several major galleries handled the Walt Kuhn Estate for Brenda at one time or another, who inherited Brenda's estate, which was later liquidated. At this point, I believe no one can legally claim his estate.
Is there an estate or family member who is handling copyright clearance for reproducing works by Walt Kuhn?
Kuhn's birth dateKaye
Walt Kuhn was born in 1877, not 1880. It is understood that at some time Walt Kuhn himself gave 1880 as his birth year so as to appear younger than he really was.
Kuhn's Date of BirthMary Webb
In a 1929 exhibition catalogue, Kuhn's date of birth is listed as 1880. I understand that this date often appears and has led to confusion.
Does anyone know the source of the discrepancy?
