Moderate shelf wear, sunning, and tiny closed tears along edges of dust-jacket. DJ in overall good, binding and interior in very good condition. About the author: Leepa, a professor of art at Michigan State University from 1945 to 1983 and an abstract expressionist artist in his own right, was the stepson of Abraham Rattner (1893-1978) - a highly regarded 20th-century modern artist who was a friend and contemporary of Pablo Picasso and other early modernists in Paris in the 1920s and 1930s - and the son of Esther Gentle (1899-1991), a sculptor, painter and printmaker. After his mother's death, Leepa inherited his stepfather's estate, which included works by Rattner and his contemporaries. The Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art was the result of a gift of art belonging to Allen Leepa (1919-2009) to the St. Petersburg Junior College (then a two-year community college) in 1996.
