Lady Profile With Flower (B&W Series) #100
A uniquely-overpainted lithograph, hand-signed and embossed with water-color and colored pencil.
'Lady Profile With Flower' illustrates the elegance, descriptiveness and simplicity of line in Peter Max's drawings. Emerging from a rich plane of black, Max's lady profile is illuminated with soft but electrifying color wash. Peter Max's feminine profiles are one of his most iconic subjects, emerging from his sketches as early as 1967. This profile seems to emerge from the piece.
In addition to his painting, Peter Max is a dedicated draftsman and printmaker, producing hundreds of prints in a range of techniques over his 50-year career - experimenting with the printing art forms and adding embellishment to his printed art to create distinctive, mixed media works. In this piece, the artist adds hand-colored, hushed color wash and dynamic swirls and strokes in colored pencil on the composition, margins and embossment seal.
