About this artwork

In 1935 Kahn met his future wife and classmate, Eleanor Coen, in Peoria, Illinois. Both went on to study at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago under Francis Chapin, who was key among Midwest educators in encouraging interest in lithography. In November 1943 the couple’s work was shown in a dual exhibition at the Art Institute, Room of Chicago Art: Paintings by Eleanor Coen and Max Kahn. Three years later, the Weyhe Gallery in New York mounted the first color lithography exhibition in the country, featuring Kahn’s work.
