Sage With Flowers (B&W Series) #101
A uniquely-overpainted lithograph, hand-signed and embossed with water-color and colored pencil.
The beautiful 'Sage with Flowers' expresses Peter Max's sparse contour of simple, fluid and perfect lines. An image of the serene sages he knew as a child in Shanghai, this sage holds elegant stems of flowers, still in the harmony of his place. It's a homage to life, peacefulness and nature.
Throughout his career, Peter Max has experimented intensively in the printing art forms - exploring different techniques, adding to and embellishing his printed art to create distinctive, mixed media works. In this piece, the artist has hand-colored the sage in electric color washes with robust swirls and strokes in colored pencil on the composition, margins and embossment seal.
