Description

From the publisher:

"Colorful and cosmic, Peter Max's art has been an integral part of contemporary American culture for more than three decades. Beginning in the 1960s, when his bold, bright paintings embodied the spirit of the times, up to the present day, his prolific output has inspired people in every corner of the world. Premier art institutions regularly exhibit solo shows of his work, and his trademark posters have achieved international popularity. From being named Official Artist of the Grammy Awards for five successive years to painting a Continental Airlines 777 plane, Max's projects always garner enormous media attention. In this comprehensive Max retrospective, 350 full-color images-many never before published-illustrate the artist's life and prolific career. Author Charles A. Riley II considers Max's uncanny ability to create fine art with tremendous popular appeal."
