JOHN ALTOON OPENING

The first major retrospective of John Altoon (1925-1969), a little-known yet important artist whose brief but significant career unfolded in Southern California from the 1950s until his untimely death in 1969 at age 43. A post-modernist before his time, Altoon had a facility with line, color and subject matter that influenced his peers and continues to resonate with artists today.  The exhibition, co-organized with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), includes approximately 70 paintings and drawings created by this legendary figure of the 1960s Los Angeles art scene.
