This new Retrospective is a journey through his extraordinary and distinguished career, so well captured by the quote below
Just as Toulouse-Lautrec captured the imagination of late 19-century Paris with his posters, Max led the international youth movement of the Sixties into a new visual culture.” ~ Charles Riley III

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 Gogh, Monet, Pablo Picasso, Renoir, and Edgar Degas, 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.
Important pieces of the Retrospective Collection and the Masters Series will be available for acquisition in the San Antonio presentation.
