About

'Legacy' is an original oil painting signed by American artist Karin Krohne Kaufman. The title adds a noble air to the magical scene the painting presents: in the image, a woman with flowing black hair and rosy cheeks walks through a curtain of weeping willow leaves, her clothing flowing in the wind. In her hand, she carries a basket of flowers and grasses and a golden monkey. Kaufman calls her works "Illustrated Dreams" because this is the experience that they most closely resemble. Her illustrations are exquisitely detailed, often depicting young Asian women and capturing a fantasy-like image of nature and children. Like dreams, these drawings contain universal symbols which psychologist Carl Jung termed archetypes. Although she has personal interpretations of the drawings, she feels that the universal symbolism which the drawings contain give them a meaning which is unique for each individual. 40 x 30 inches, canvas 49.5 x 39.5 inches, frame Signed and dated lower right Framed to conservation standards using a beveled three-inch linen liner and a reverse ogee gold finish wood moulding Karin Krohne Kaufman was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Her serious interest in art began at the age of four, when she found herself drawing whenever she had the chance. Children’s book illustrations were a particular interest to Kaufman. She was drawn to vivid colors and the way in which the subjects appeared animated. Through the 1970’s Kaufman independently studied and analyzed illustration and from there, developed her own style, primarily working with pen and ink, eventually switching to drawing with graphite in the late 1970’s. From 1980-1985 Kaufman attended the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee to obtain a degree in nursing, while also taking two semesters of basic drawing, and one semester of life drawing. During her years in college, she became familiar with psychologist Carl Jung’s work, specifically in the areas of archetypes and dream symbolism. She also studied world religions and took particular interest in Native American philosophy. These interests greatly influence Kaufman’s art. They are reflected in the universal symbols that she uses in her drawings, and indirectly her reverence for the earth.
