Vase Of Flowers Series 78 Ver. I #2
Acrylic on Paper
20" x 16"
One of Peter Max's most popular subjects, this 'Vase of Flowers' painting is rare and unique in its remarkable, fauvist color palette, and animated, expressionistic brushwork throughout the entire work. Defying the term 'still life,' the painting seems to be in perpetual motion, a constant state of flowering. Every inch of the work is touched with kinetic brushwork. The artist mixes his paints right on his brush, before creating the profusion of multi-colors, spontaneous, but controlled brushstrokes.
