    I’m trying to get hold of someone who can confirm a Peter Max picture that was given to me when a family member passed away. I’m guessing it was one of his early pictures possibly in the 60’s It has his most distinguishing signature and looks to be a oil or pastel. It is a picture of a huge blue flower which covers most of the picture. I’ve had a difficult time trying to find out who to go to for this information. Thank you for your help with this matter.
    You can contact me at (757) 403-0097 or email gward13@cox.net
