One of very few American sculptors who worked in wood and eventually welded-steel in the late 1940's, Robert Kuhn established himself in the Washington, D.C., area after a long period of study in Mexico.
His artist career spanned 60 years as a master of lyrical, figurative and abstract sculpture with its variegated subject matter of refreshing breadth and emotional range.

A note from Marcy Logan, discovering the world of Robert E. Kuhn:
On a day not long ago, I met the man who would introduce me to the artwork of Robert E. Kuhn, at the artist's estate in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It Happened to be an old church with a sculpture garden. Within the grounds, were an old parsonage and recreation hall, and all of the artwork his father had created from the early 1950’s to 2000. Upon seeing this artwork, I immediately thought of Clifford Stills’ abstract artwork and the discovery of this treasured art in a Pennsylvania barn. His artwork is now housed in a private museum in Colorado and he is recognized by the world as a creator of great abstract art.
Lo and behold, I embraced Robert Kuhn’s world and his art. My house here on Swann Street and my imagination were swiftly transformed into a Robert E. Kuhn art sanctuary where I meditate the beauty of his works daily and the joy that it surely brings to our world. You are welcome to visit my Swann Street Gallery and to see of what I speak.
