Peter Krasnow, "Maverick Modernist"

Sixteen years ago the Laguna Art Museum acquired much of the work of artist Peter Krasnow, and responding to that gift from his foundation, pledged to mount a definitive show of paintings and sculpture by this under appreciated West Coast Modernist. That big thank you exhibition has arrived, along with a catalogue documenting the range of his work, from colorful, narrative and folklore-based early pieces to later geometric tableaus. From decades of art by the LA-based Ukrainian-Jewish émigré (born Feivish Reisberg), “Maverick Modernist” features a fraction of the museum’s own Krasnow holdings but thoughtfully surveys his distinctive work, charting both a movement and an often- overlooked artist who now finds immortality in Laguna Beach.
