Sage With Umbrella And Cane On Blends

Regular price $1,515

Lithograph

A limited edition graphic print on fine archival paper. One from a numbered edition of 500 signed by Peter Max. 

In 'Sage with Umbrella and Cane on Blends,' a meditative sage, a remembrance of the artist's childhood in Shanghai, holds his umbrella and cane, and ponders the future in a dreamy, scarlet-fuchsia horizon. 

Printmaking has been central to Max's practice since the 1960s, when he experimented with a 'split fountain' technique on press to achieve beautiful and fluid color blend gradations from his press inks. Max continued his work with his signature color blends through the decades. In this piece he frames his sage with an electric, color blend border against a sublime and complementary color blend margin - creating an exquisite and transcendent graphic print.
