in the Drawings of Louis Kahan
Paul Klee's declaration: "A line is a dot that went for a walk" . . . and Matisse's meaningful lesson to his students: "One must always search for the desire of the line, where it wishes to enter or where to die away" are embodied within the drawings of the Austrian born, Australian artist, Louis Kahan.

I prefer to call the facility of an artist to be able to imagine a form before drawing or painting it, "pictorial imagination," and Kahan had this talent in spades. In contrast to his free-form and loosely rendered drawings, these life-like portraits display his talent for rendering details with spontaneous ease.
