Lot Essay

'No one painted African animals like Wilhelm Kuhnert. It is an opinion that is widely shared among Africa's professional hunters, men who know the animals individually and fondly and who have little tolerance for misrepresentations' (T. Wieland, Wildlife Art News, July/August 1991, p. 46).
