Very beautiful work. I love Kahn's minimalist approach, he is an exceptional colorist. I could look at this man's art all day long and not get bored.

Wolf Kahn's self-admitted charm glows in this book of his pastels. Wolf Kahn is a wonderful story teller, in his words and in his beautiful, simple, radiant paintings. He is a wonderful teacher who loves to share his experiences and his vision. I could re-read this book over and over, pondering and absorbing the beautifully reproduced pastels.
For those who love glorious color, peaceful abstract landscapes, especially artists and Wolf Kan 'groupies,' for anyone who can't get enough of Wolf Kahn, you need this book. A sparkling complement to Justin Spring's Wolf Kahn.

Why does an artist do what (s)he does? Wolf Kahn gives insight into his thinking. He touches on composition, use of color, and elements of design. We know the colors, but we might not understand why they work. He helps us understand. Just out of curiosity I viewed the plates upsidedown, and they were very exciting viewed that way. Try it! The book has beautifully printed plates, but I found placement of some plates to the text somewhat inconvenient and perhaps a little confusing at times interrupting the continuity of reading and study. I would have wished for some of the smaller paintings to have been actual size. I would have learned and understood more. You may learn some new vocabulary and some words he has defined for his own usefulness. The cover and binding are confluent to the interior of the book. I consider this book to have worthwhile the purchase and the time spent reading it. What are my credentials you might ask? I am nearing graduation in master of arts in studio painting and have degrees in journalism and education.

From the first time I saw Wolf Kahn's work, I knew I wanted this book. It is filled with his beautiful pastels and it is a very interesting read about how he came to create them.

a pleasure to the eye Aug. 11 2008
By J. Forbes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a visual delight with clear crisp images. As a teacher, it is a very user friendly book
with students able to see the intricate marks and the layering that Wolf Kahn has used in his work.
For anyone interested in pastel techniques this is a great book.

One of the best art book- whether you do pastels or not Nov. 9 2011
By Manoj Sharma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is definitely one of the best art books I have read recently. Whether you do pastels or not does not really matter. The way Wolf describes his thought process and the way he expresses his conflict and struggle with his and medium's limitations at times to produce something which is beyond a cheap bag of tricks is awesome. Very inspiring and true. Here is an artist who can also write and express as beautifully as he can paint. It is a great gift to have discovered this book.

Disappointing Sept. 1 2013
By jung johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am a pastel artist and read amazing reviews on this book while I was looking for a book to help me improve with my pastel work.
However, I was disappointed with this book when I received it. It was not what I was hoping it to be. Maybe I am not up to the level I should be able to appreciate his abstract or basic drawings or coloring. I found a few paintings of his in the book that I felt the colors were beautiful and inspiring but most paintings of this book were very disappointing.
