For well over 40 years, Lillian Kornbluth had been an established art dealer in the New York metropolitan area. Her gallery based in Northern New Jersey represented many artists which included Wolf Kahn, Milton Avery, Helen Frankenthaler, Will Barnet, Pablo Picasso, Richard Segalman and many others. Clars is pleased to be offering the Lillian Kornbluth Estate in our Important May 31st Auction
The works by Wolf Kahn to be featured from the collection are numerous oils on canvas, pastels, color lithographs, etchings and screenprints. A native of Stuttgart, Germany, Kahn studied under Hans Hofmann at his school in New York City in the 1950s and 60s. Kahn developed his own unique style of using vibrant color and tones that was both representational and Abstract Expressionistic. Lillian Kornbluth was well aware of Kahn’s talent and was a pioneer in representing this very talented American artist in his early career. Kahns work can be found in the collections of every major international museum.
