Peter Max Landscapes
From bold, psychedelic landscapes in the 1960s to sensuous, painterly renderings in the 1990s, the art of Peter Max represents a unique blending of cultural symbolism with an intense and vivid color palette.
The artist’s imagery has exerted a sweeping influence in the world of art that is often compared by critics to the Beatles’ impact on the music of our time.
Max celebrates the American experience and revels in popular American imagery, as reflected in the vibrant and exuberant images he created as Official Artist for World Cup ’94 and for the last five Super Bowls including Super Bowl XXXI. Peter Max has painted for five US Presidents and has received numerous awards for his contributions to America.
