Cosmic Runner 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. 

This joyful work features an iconic drawing from Peter Max's signature 1960s 'Cosmic Art' period - an era of works that inspired and captured the zeitgeist of a generation and brought the artist international acclaim. In 'Cosmic Runner on Blends,' Max's gravity defying runner leaps over the sun with peace birds and one of the artist's signature profiles of this era. A 'Zen Boat' sails along on a celestial lake against a mountain of cumulus clouds on its own tranquil journey. 

Printmaking has been central to Max's practice since the 1960s, when he experimented with a 'split fountain' technique on press to achieve fluid color blend gradations from his press inks. Max continued his work with his lush, signature color blends through the decades. In this piece, he has framed his 'Cosmic Runner' in a bold, color blend border set against an electric and complementary color blend margin - creating a vibrant and exuberant graphic print.
