Walt Kuhn

Kuhn was born in Brooklyn, New York, and studied art at the Royal Academy in Munich under the tutelage of the Barbizon painter, Heinrich von Zugel. He held his first exhibit at the famed, Salmagundi Club, where he established himself as a cartoonist and painter. Kuhn helped form the Association of American Painters and Sculptors and was responsible in launching the now famous "Armory Show" of 1913. He died in White Plains, New York, of a perforated stomach ulcer. Kuhn is remembered today as an early advocate of Modern Art in America and his studies of circus, vaudevile entertainers, and women, are strong examples of the beginning of American Modernism, whether done in oil, or the graphic arts.
