Bob Kuhn (1920-2007) Running Wild signed "Bob Kuhn" on back oil on masonite, 20 by 42 in.
Born and raised in Buffalo, New York, Bob Kuhn enjoyed visiting the Buffalo Zoo and sketching its inhabitants as a child. After studying design, anatomy, and life drawing at the Pratt Institute in New York City, Kuhn made his living working as an illustrator for various wildlife and outdoor magazines. In the early 1970s Kuhn switched to painting full time. Kuhnís work is featured in the permanent collections of the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming, the National Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and the John L. Wehle Gallery of Sporting Art at the Genesee Country Village and Museum in Mumford, while "Running Wild" is a more tranquil scene of white-tail deer bounding through a vibrant, late afternoon landscape with contrasting darks and lights. It is similar in size, shape, and scope to the record work.
