Artist Biography

Manfred H. Kuhnert was born in 1931 outside the cultural capital of Dresden, son of Franz Joseph and Gertrud Kuhnert. His mother, Baroness Gertrud Kob Von Urbensteadt was an accomplished artist and graduate of the prestigious Dresden Academy of Fine Art. Under her guidance, she developed his interest and passion for painting at a young age. Manfred H. Kuhnert is a consummate artist, whose knowledge is solidly grounded in both craft and theory. His complex and intricate sense of color, together with his mastery of line, shape, and form unite to create works that arrest the eye. He is an artist who is intimately connected with the world he paints. His work vividly captures languid days on the California Coast and the serene beauty of The Pacific Ocean which is the inspiration for many of his masterful paintings. His great skill enables him to capture elusive moods in his paintings without sentiment, offering a fresh, delightful view of the world...truly a vision of enchantment. In 1963, Mr. Kuhnert founded his eponymous gallery, The Kuhnert Gallery in Los Angeles, California with his wife of 58 years, Anna Flynn Kuhnert, and exhibited his work at international art exhibitions across the country and abroad. Since 1974, millions of prints based on original works by Manfred H. Kuhnert have been published and distributed in 73 countries across the globe. For 34 years, beginning in 1980, Mr. Kuhnert maintained his studio in Laguna Beach, California. Inspired by the chiseled light of Laguna Beach, his explorations evolved from traditional "veduta" paintings, charmingly documenting local scenes around him, to paintings that seek to release the dynamic energy of this sublime landscape. Since 1994 Mr. Kuhnert has given full voice to expressionistic and ultimately symbolistic works, seeking "harmony in extremis" through complementary color pairings, negative space, and pure forms liberated from a narrative context. Manfred H. Kuhnert truly loved art, rarely taking a moment away. He was a prolific painter, painting in his Laguna Beach studio seven days a week, often without a break, creating thousands of original works throughout his lifetime. Mr. Kuhnert attracted a worldwide fanbase, including collectors from every country across the globe. The artist's daughter, Tara Kuhnert Hotchkis, and daughter-in-law, Carey Hotchkis continue to promote the work and legacy of Manfred H. Kuhnert, sharing his beautiful work with art lovers all over the world. "Thank you for visiting my dad's art, we hope you love it as much as we do!" - Tara Kuhnert Hotchkis
