About the book:

As a young artist and musician, Wesley Wehr became a friend and often a confidant of many of the painters, poets, and musicians who lived or worked in the Northwest in the 1950s and 1960s. Drawing on his journals, Wehr provides an engagingly written, intriguing, and informative series of vignettes of painters Mark Tobey, Pehr Hallsten, Helmi Juvonen, Guy Anderson, and Morris Graves; photographer Imogen Cunningham; gallery owner Zoe Dusanne; poets Thoedore Roethke, Richard Selig, Elizabeth Bishop, and Leone Adams; philosopher Susanne Langer; musicians Ernest Bloch and Berthe Poncy Jacobson; and actor Margaret Hamilton. Wesley Wehr is affiliate curator of paleobotany at the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, University of Washington. He has served as curator of numerous art exhibitions and is a leading authority on Mark Tobey.
