When Park West Gallery was founded in 1969, it would’ve been hard to imagine a more popular living artist than Peter Max.

CBS News once said that, “If the Beatles provided the soundtrack of [the 1960s], then Peter Max painted the landscape of the time.”

That’s why, in celebration of Park West’s 50th anniversary, we are proud to offer a collection of over 40 original works direct from Peter Max’s studio in our new Fall Sale.

You can view the entire collection here, featuring a diverse range of mediums and styles from one of the most iconic American artists of the past century.

Over the course of his amazing career, Max evolved from a visionary Pop artist to a master of Neo-Expressionism. His visual impact on modern popular culture simply cannot be overstated.

Max painted six sitting U.S. presidents, was the official artist for the 2006 U.S. Winter Olympics team, and created art for World Cups, U.S. Opens, and Super Bowls. He also brought his cosmic imagery to everything from the side of a cruise ship to the body of a Boeing 77 Super Jet.

This Fall Sale allows Park West collectors to take home an original, hand-signed Max work in one of several different exciting formats.

For starters, we’re offering a limited selection of unique acrylic and mixed media paintings, showcasing Max’s most famous designs like Umbrella Man, the Statue of Liberty, Angel with Heart, and more.

Park West is also happy to present a new collection of serigraphs for fans of Max’s graphic works. Serigraphy is perfectly suited to Max’s bold art style, expertly capturing his brilliant hues and signature brushstrokes in a way few mediums can.

Next, we’ve released a special series of Max etchings from Park West’s archives, which may represent some of the most exciting works that Max’s studio has created in years.

The hand-painted elements for each etching are done with transparent layers of pigment, revealing the intricacies of the etching lines below. Once hand-colored, original remarque drawings are added in the margins of each sheet, making each one different.

In the 2013 HarperCollins book, The Universe of Peter Max, it describes the “timeless attraction” of Max’s art, arguing that the attraction “resides in [Max’s] ecstatic sense of color, a flawless eye for attention-arresting design, a free and spontaneous improvisational technique, and an unerring ability to discover imagery that penetrates to the heart of our culture.”

Don’t miss this chance to add a new work inspired by Max’s flawless eye to your collection today.

To collect original works by Peter Max, contact our gallery consultants at (800) 521-9654 ext. 4 or at sales@parkwestgallery.com after hours.
