Artist: Kuhn, BobDate of Birth: 1920-2007
Medium: Acrylic
Dimensions: 24 x 36 inches
Signed: Signed upper right

A prominent wildlife illustrator who turned to easel painting in 1970, Bob Kuhn swiftly inherited the mantle of Wilhelm Kuhnert and Carl Rungius, becoming perhaps the finest interpreter of big game animals of his era. KuhnÕs uncanny accuracy in capturing the natural world belies two less apparent but very real strengths. The first is an unerring sense of design. The second is his deep experience in the outdoors observing creatures in the wild. Cool Cat is just thatÑa big leopard splayed out and taking it easy in the crook of a tree. Has she just eaten, or it it just too hot to hunt? Her eyes narrow. SheÕs drifting off. You can almost hear her guttural house cat purr of contentment. But even at rest her claws are out.
