“Love” Peter Max 2010

Max’s iconic ‘Love,’ first created as his
acclaimed Art Nouveau-inspired ‘Love’
poster for the ‘60s generation, now
flows with his signature, expressionistic
brushstrokes.

 

America’s most popular living Artist celebrates our world, our country and brings a message of unity, love and hope to all.

 A newly-curated collection by artist legend, Peter Max’s exquisite paintings will be on exhibition and available for acquisition in a presentation at Gallery725.

Important pieces of the Retrospective Collection and the Masters Series will be available for acquisition in the Jacksonville presentation.

The Artist has assembled a collection of his greatest and most-revered imagery spanning four decades: from his iconic Pop Art designs commemorating Woodstock to the 2013 unveiling of Max’s design for the cruise ship Breakaway and the exquisite Masters series. This new exhibition speaks to the evolution and maturation of America’s most popular living Artist.

 

This carefully curated collection is a museum-like retrospective of Max’s works:  Peter Max has painted for five U.S. Presidents and his art is on display in Museums, Presidential Libraries and in U.S. Embassies across the globe.   He has been the Official Artist of the Grammy’s, five NFL Super Bowls, the 2006 Olympics, the World Cup USA, The World Series, The U.S. Open, The Indy 500, The NYC Marathon and The Kentucky Derby. 

 

 

Peter Max emerged as a powerful force in the Art World from the prestigious Art Students League, alongside such artists as Robert Rauschenberg, Jackson Pollack, Cy Twombly and Norman Rockwell.  The League was a formative influence on these artists’ innovative artwork, and has led each and every one to greatness and an important legacy in history.

 

Max’s Art Students League scholarly influence inspired all of his extraordinary artwork, and of late, his new Masters series; his interpretive works of Vincent Van GoghMonet, Pablo Picasso, Renoir, and EdgarDegas, conceived in Max’s signature style and colors.  These works speak to both a maturation of the artist’s illustrious career, as well as to his formidable training at the 130-year-old Art Students League of New York.
