Woman in Derby
25" x 19"
A limited edition graphic print on fine archival paper. One from a numbered edition of 200 signed by Peter Max.
Peter Max's vintage print, 'Woman in Derby' marks a departure for the artist as he moved from his 1960s 'Cosmic Art' period with solid black line work and full, bold color fills, to more minimalism with suggestive, broken lines and soft, sparse color.
Max often works through his inspirations simultaneously in pen, paint and print. The printing art forms are as important to him as his painting process. In this cheeky and cheerful graphic print, a brazen nude wears only her derby hat and boots. She is drawn in Max's fluid and graceful lines with minimal color to highlight her form and presence - creating a striking and delightful piece.
