The Artist #12
22.5" x 19.5"
Peter Max cherishes the etching process - one of the oldest and most complex printmaking art forms.
'The Artist' is a rare composition for Max - a soft portrait of a fellow artist with eyes closed and face turned slightly away, seemingly deep in thought. His striking, patterned lapel and broad shoulders draw our attention.
Max renders the black line work in soft, fluid lines. This elegant etching is hand-colored with color-wash and sumptuous stroke work in Max's stunning color palette - adding texture and depth and creating a unique work of art.
