    1. I had a hard time putting this coffee table sized book down I was interested in Kahn s life story, but also in what the author had to say how how the artist s style evolved, and about his choices of color The plates are luscious I want to see the actual paintings very much now.


    2. This is such a beautiful book, and I have returned to it repeatedly over the years for inspiration in my own work Kahn is a master.
