Wolf Kahn worked in oil paints and pastel. He usually painted his own vision of landscapes using beautiful bright colours.
He wanted his colours to surprise people.
Wolf said that he began to draw when he was 4 years old. His grandmother signed him up for private art lessons when he was 11 years old. He practised drawing every day.
When he was 12 years old, his grandmother made arrangements for him to be sent to England in the Kindertransport programme, which transported thousands of children out of Germany during World War 11. He stayed with two families in England, and eventually at the age of 13, he travelled to America to join his father and family.
