Biographical / Historical:
Aimée Brown Price (1939- ) is an American art historian based in New York City.

Peter Krasnow (1886-1979) was a painter, sculptor, and printmaker who lived and worked primarily in Southern California. He was born on August 20, 1886 in the Ukraine to Jewish parents. Krasnow emigrated to the United States in 1907 and moved to Los Angeles in 1922 with his wife Rose (1885-1984). Earlier in his career, Krasnow created watercolor paintings of landscapes and wood carvings, but beginning in 1934, he began to create paintings which depicted geometric designs and often incorporated symbolism from his Jewish heritage. Krasnow continued to paint until his death on October 30, 1979 in Los Angeles.
Related Materials:
Also found in the Archives of American Art are the Peter and Rose Krasnow papers, 1914-1984.
Provenance:
Donated in 2022 by Aimée Brown Price and Monroe E. Price, executors of Krasnow's estate and trustees of the Peter and Rose Krasnow Foundation.
