Sensual Mechanical: The Art of Craig Kauffman
 
In this monograph, Hunter Drohojowska-Philp traces the development of Craig Kauffman's luminous paintings by juxtaposing the artist's architectural rigor with his unabashed sensuality. As one of the most significant figures to emerge from the lively art scene that arose in the 1960s in Los Angeles, Kauffman harnessed his disparate impulses to achieve an unparalleled body of work.
