Celebrated wildlife artist Bob Kuhn was born in Buffalo, New York and attended the Pratt Institute of Art in Brooklyn. For thirty years following his graduation, he was one of the most popular wildlife illustrators in the United States. In 1970, he focused on easel painting and traveled around the world to study wildlife for his paintings. Some of his travels included numerous trips to Africa, Alaska, Canada, and throughout the American West. Throughout his career, Kuhn developed a specialty in capturing the movement and personalities of wildlife animals. He was a member of New York’s Society of Animal Artists, and his work has been collected and exhibited by multiple institutions including the John L. Wehle Gallery of Sporting Art at the Genesee Country Museum in New York, the National Museum of Wildlife in Jackson Hole, and the National Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City, among others.
