Peter Krasnow (1886-1979) is the great California modernist you don't know. Although revered during his lifetime by a coterie that included Edward Weston, Richard Neutra, Rudolph Schindler, Galka Scheyer, Frederick Sommer, Grace Clements, Lorser Feitelson, Helen Lundeberg, June Wayne, and Jules Langsner, Krasnow remained largely out of the public eye, cantankerously resisting publicity or self-promotion while dedicating himself to an artistic ideal. He demonstrated extraordinary skills in each of his three major phases: the early representational paintings and wood carvings (1910-1930), the abstract wood sculptures (1936-1943), and the hard-edged geometric and patterned paintings (1940-1979).
This book is a collection of his drawing in black and white with a brief introduction and dedication to his wife, Rose.

These were printed in 1967 and are not in the best of condition, so they are deeply discounted keeping that in mind.
