The 'Umbrella Man' is one of Peter Max's most famous signature characters that emerged during his 'Neo-Fauve' painting period of the 1980s. Originally inspired by a famous photograph of the cellist Pablo Casals, playing his cello on the beach, 'Umbrella Man' is a Felliniesque character, with his coat, hat and umbrella rendered in a surge of colors looking into the horizon ahead.
