"A long-time art teacher and painter in California, Peter Blos also made numerous sketching trips into the Southwest.
He was born in Munich, Germany, the son of a well known portraitist, Carl Blos. He studied art in Munich and Paris and in 1931, immigrated with his artist wife, May Blos, to California where he became a portrait painter. From 1931, often accompanied by his wife, he made more than thirty-five annual trips to the Southwest to paint the Hopi and Navajo tribes and landscape of Utah and Colorado.
In 1953, he began teaching in California at San Mateo Arts and Crafts School and later taught art at Burlingame, Danville, and Lafayette. He also taught for twenty years at the Civic Arts Education Center in Walnut Creek."
