Two Sages (MINI)
A limited edition graphic print on fine archival paper. One from a numbered edition of 500 signed by Peter Max.
In 'Two Sages,' the incredible influence from Peter Max's childhood growing up in Shanghai are expressed in his elaborate black line work, bold hues, soft color washes and pencil line work. Two sages hold their umbrellas as they watch Chinese 'junk' boats, what the artist calls 'Zen Boats,' sail on the horizon. An immense sun sets near a cascading mountain of clouds. Elements of Asian flora, rendered in beautiful, calligraphic fluidity, balance this enchanting composition.
The printing art forms are as important to Max as his painting process, and he has created works with many printing processes throughout his career. This entrancing graphic print invites us to a soothing and peaceful place - rich in brilliant color and blessed forms.
