Dan Yellow KUHNE
Dan Yellow Kuhne (b. 1942, Oneida, NY) is an American abstract painter who came of age in the second generation of the Washington Color School. Growing up near the Baltimore Museum of Art, Kuhne was exposed to art at an early age, influenced particularly by the paintings of J.M.W. Turner and the German Expressionists. Around this time he adopted the nickname �Dan Yellow� after mishearing a friend who referred to him as �Daniello.�

Between 1960 and 1973 Kuhne studied intermittently at the University of Maryland, College Park, and took classes from first generation Color School painter Gene Davis. Kuhne later shifted his focus to teaching, and became an instructor in primary drawing at the Anne Arundel Community College.

Kuhne�s notable Dog Eared series (1970-74) comprises approximately 45 canvases in the form and style that have become his signature. His imaginative forms were produced through a mixture of �water, gravity and paper texture.� This interest in strong contrasting colors and technical and structural exploration is still evident in Kuhne�s work today.
