Peter Max, White Face, Original Acrylic Painting 1971
38″ x 40″
Beginning in the 1960s Peter Max has been rendering vibrant cosmic landscapes which have striking visual parallels to the themes that were being expressed by The Beatles; mind expansion, intergalactic journeys, fantastic timeless landscapes, colorful portraits of curious characters, and above all love for fellow man.
Certainly the subject of Max's work often reflects his own social and spiritual interests alongside his aesthetic and formal concerns. Throughout the past two decades he became a champion of many causes ranging from environmentalism and the campaign for Tibet, to the restoration of the Statue of Liberty.
