A limited edition graphic print on fine archival paper. One from a numbered edition of 165 signed by Peter Max.
Peter Max's sublime, vintage print, 'Red Sail' marks a departure for the artist as he moved from his 1960s 'Cosmic Art' period with solid black line work and full, bold color fills, to a more minimalist period of soft, suggestive and broken line work. He executed his color during this new period with soft washes in subdued hues and punctuations of vibrance.
Max often works through his inspirations simultaneously in pen, paint and print. The printing art forms are as important to him as his painting process. In this serene graphic print, his iconic subjects - and exquisite feminine profile, a gravity-defying traveler, and a 'Zen Boat' with full sail traverse in a light and airy composition. This piece holds the tranquility of a breezy summer's day.
