Wolf Kahn was born in Germany and immigrated to the United States in 1940. After serving in the US Navy during World War II, he used the GI Bill to study with the renowned Abstract Expressionist painter Hans Hoffman. After completing formal studies at the University of Chicago in 1951, Kahn devoted himself to painting full time.

His paintings are in such prominent public collections as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, California; Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.; and more.
