Umbrella Man At Sunrise

Regular price $915

Lithograph

A limited edition graphic print on fine archival paper. One from a numbered edition of 500 signed by Peter Max. 

Created in a rare, subtle and stunning color palette, the 'Umbrella Man' is one of Peter Max's most famous signature characters. Originally inspired by a famous photograph of the cellist Pablo Casals, playing his cello on the beach, 'Umbrella Man' is a Felliniesque-character, with a coat, hat and umbrella seen from behind looking into the horizon and future ahead. 

The soft hues of this piece are unusual for the artist - flowing strokes and emerald green, cerulean blue, marigold and hints of creamy pink create a grandiose and evolving horizon. With experimentation and curiosity, Peter Max has created works with many printing processes throughout his career. In this transcendent graphic print, 'Umbrella Man at Sunrise,' we witness with the subject this stunning sunrise bringing tranquility, reflection and the promise of a new day.
