Broad Summer Landscape with Farm

Condition: Good.

N.B. Leaving his native Germany for New York at age 16, H. Peter Kahn studied at the Pratt Institute and the Art Students League, as well as the Hans Hofmann School in Provincetown, Massachusetts, and he earned undergraduate and graduate degrees in the early 1950s from New York University. In 1957 Kahn took a tenure-track position at Cornell University and moved with his wife and daughters to Etna, New York, outside of Ithaca, the area most likely depicted in this 1960 landscape. Kahn's farm and studio became an influential gathering place for many Cornell students involved in the arts.
Estimate $1,500-2,000
