WOLF KAHN AT NIAGARA FALLS begins with a discussion of the 19th century painting "Niagara" by Frederick Church. We then accompany Wolf to Niagara Falls as he sketches in pastel at some of the same locations where Church painted. Differences between a contemporary and a 19th century approach to painting the landscape and to art in general are clarified, leading to larger generalizations between tradition and present practice. (16 minutes)

Recommended for College and University art departments and anyone interested in landscape painting.
