John Altoon - Fay's Christmas Painting, 1958

From Wikipedia:  Altoon's work was related to Abstract expressionism although he is best known for his figurative works of the 1960s, with as Leah Ollman describes "a vocabulary of vaguely figurative, botanical and biological forms that he pursued until his death." He was part of the "Ferus group" of artists so called for their association to the Ferus Gallery that operated in Los Angeles in 1957–1966. Some of the others artists included in this group are Edward Kienholz and Robert Irwin.
