Pacific Standard Time

Pacific Standard Time: Los Angeles Art, 1945–1980
Edited by Rebecca Peabody, Andrew Perchuk, Glenn Phillips, and Rani Singh, with Lucy Bradnock

This comprehensive, richly illustrated book explores postwar American art from a new perspective: Southern California. The analysis of the L.A. art scene from the end of World War II until the beginning of the 1980s—the first in-depth scholarly survey of the region's art—demonstrates the major role Southern California artists played in the twentieth century's most influential art movements.
