Price range information: Sorry none available.

First a shout out to Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason for being the longest married artistic couple I have profiled. The two artists have been married 56 years, but have rarely shown their works side by side. Here we visit one of these rare showings of both artists:

The artist also was the recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship which allowed her to study art overseas in Italy.

She is married to one of my favorite painters and my favorite abstract artist who works with pastels, Wolf Kahn. Below some works by Wolf Kahn. I have always been a fan of his work because similar to Len Chmiel, he uses unique color combinations not usually seen in the landscape. His blend of color field painting and realism leads to very unique designs.

Her mother founded the American Abstract Artist group. The abstract movement hadn’t yet caught the momentum that would in later years.

Emily Mason has been a professor at Hunter College.

What a wonderful artistic family!
