Like many artists in his generation, Bob Kuhn started out as an illustrator, contributing renderings of animals to books and periodicals. In 1970, he turned his attention exclusively to easel painting and eventually inherited the mantle worn by Wilhelm Kuhnert and Carl Rungius as the finest interpreter of big game animals. Kuhn balanced a desire to capture his subjects accurately with a flair for design that transmits the essential cycle of action and stillness in the natural world.
