Andre Kohn — The precise convergence of three dynamic forces-culture, environment and talent-combined to produce one of the most collected figurative painters on the American art scene today. Raised by an artistically gifted family near the Caspian Sea in southern Russia, Kohn's received a formal art education from the University of Moscow where he studied with members of the last great generation of Russian Impressionists. He was also influenced by such artists as, Fechin, Repin, Serov, Degas, Sargent, and Sorolla. After moving to America in 1993, it took very little time for American art audiences and the media to discover the mature, fresh figurative painting style of the young Russian.
Kohn remains a preeminent leader of Figurative Impressionism and seeks to capture the complexity as well as the simplicity and directness of the human form. “I'm seeking my own unique, poetic interpretation of the moment,” he says. “I'm striving to find the extraordinary in the ordinary.”
