This first major book on John Altoon, a legendary figure of the Los Angeles art scene in the 1960s, examines the artist’s work not only in the context of his peers but also considers his resonance for later generations of artists. Renowned as much for his charismatic and mercurial personality as for his vibrant and visceral drawings and paintings, John Altoon is perhaps the least familiar of all the original Ferus Gallery (Los Angeles) artists—a group that included Robert Irwin, Edward Kienholz, Ken Price, and Ed Ruscha. Hardcover, 136 pages.
