Bill Kohn, a widely traveled painter, applied intense color and large scale to series of works based on specific sites. The paintings are at once abstract and descriptive with bold brushwork, yet maintaining a strong sense of place. Among the series are India, Machu Picchu (Peru), the Grand Canyon, the bridges of Paris (France), Seville (Spain), Guadalajara and Oaxaco (Mexico). The latter three resulted in exhibitions in municipal galleries in those cities. He also produced performance works involving electronic music and computerized slide projection based on the Canyon, Machu Picchu, and the Virgin of Rocio (Spain).

Kohn received, among others, a Fulbright Grant to India, Missouri State Council of the Arts Award, Distinguished Faculty Award, and the Missouri Arts Award (2002). He was Professor Emeritus at Washington University School of Art in St. Louis, Missouri. His long list of collectors includes the St. Louis Art Museum, the Springfield (MO) Art Museum, the Chase Manhattan Bank and the Convention Centers in Hot Springs and Fort Smith, Arkansas. Bill Kohn passed away on Saturday, Nov. 13, 2004, after a long battle with cancer.
