Walt Kuhn (1877-1949) American artist, born in New York City. After studying in Europe he helped organize the Armory Show (International Exhibition of Modern Art, New York City, 1913). He is known chiefly for his vigorous paintings of circus performers, chorines, and trapeze athletes. His Blue Clown (1931, Whitney Museum, New York City) is one the most popular examples of his work. Kuhn helped introduce the techniques and theories of modern art to the American public and to many American artists.
