Le Jardin by Walton Ford

For “Le Jardin,” the centerpiece of the Kasmin show, he lifted almost verbatim from the sketchbooks of George Caitlin, the American Indian painter, a scene of a blood-soaked standoff between a buffalo and a pack of white wolves.

Again life-size and produced as a triptych, this watercolor has more than one interpretation. Beyond being a nod to the vanished world of the Old West, it is a war of worlds and manners. It is a scene of incredible savagery set in a formal French garden with clipped lawns, an urn and topiary, a version of one Mr. Ford saw recently in Normandy. “I thought, ‘You take this American frontier and you bust loose,’ ” Mr. Ford said. “It’s every French person’s nightmare, and it becomes like Henry James, that conflict between European and American sensibilities.”

If some of Cahn’s images are unexpected or unsettling, it is because, quite simply, they are the expressions of a very self-aware woman’s unapologetic point of view.

Her canvasses are hyper-assertive, full of operatic grandeur, self-mocking turbulence, disfigured hideousness and the psychopathology of her figures.
