art in evolution – from Monet to Wolf Kahn
“I would never have guessed that Wolf Kahn was a student of Hoffman. Yet you can see the influence in the colour choice and lack of detail. It somehow reminds me of impressionism. The child of Hoffman and Monet. Especially the painting “Subtle Pink, 2000″. It reminds me of Monet’s painting series “Poplars”.
For the record, I prefer Kahn over Hoffman.”
“Subtle Pink“ (2000)
“Poplars at Giverny” (1887)
I would also compare his “Orange Cloud Over the Adriatic Sea“
“Orange Cloud Over the Adriatic Sea“ (1996)
to Monet‘s “Impression, Sunrise“
“Impression, Sunrise“ (1873)
what do you think
psst: art, like novels, has its templates
You could also say “Autumn effect at Argenteuil” is similar to Orange Cloud Over the Adriatic Sea“. At least in the colour scheme. Contrasting blue and orange.
I agree with your statement “art, like novels, has its templates”. People take what they know, what they see around them and put their perspective on it. It’s how art grows and evolves.
