John Altoon ('49) was an important presence in the L.A. art scene of the 1950s and '60s. As a member of the Ferus Gallery (Venice) group, he applied an expressionistic style to painting the bohemian life of the city streets and beaches. Among other members of this group were Edward Kienholz and Robert Irwin ('50).
An exhibition of his work was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, in 1997, curated by Hugh M. Davies and Andrea Hales.
