Monk And Sun
Acrylic on Canvas
36" x 48"
This rare and exquisite Peter Max composition crystalizes the artist's memories of the peaceful monks he watched growing up in Shanghai and on family trips to the Himalayan Mountains.
A bold morning sun rises dramatically on the horizon. It's intense red-orange contrasts the sublime landscape and gives a soft, golden glow to the sky and rivers in the monk's view. The monk is a participate and observer to the creation and spellbinding vista around him.
Painted in a subtle palette that meets bursts of potent color and brushwork in the artist's neo-expressionistic style, 'Monk and Sun' reveals transcendence and noble beauty.
