Umbrella Man VI 494/495
22" x 19.5"
This dramatic color etching features one of Peter Max's most celebrated, signature icons - the 'Umbrella Man.' Originally inspired by a famous photograph of the cellist Pablo Casals, playing his cello on the beach, 'Umbrella Man' is a sort of Felliniesque character - with his coat, hat and umbrella rendered in bold etching lines and a soft palette of blending colors, he looks out on the horizon and to the future ahead.
With fluid, color line work, 'Umbrella Man VI' is hand-remarqued in the margins of the piece after printing with two more of Max's iconic subjects - an 'Angel with Heart' watching from above and a 'Zen Boat' at sea below.
