The Artist has assembled a collection of his greatest and most-revered imagery spanning four decades: from his iconic Pop Art designs commemorating Woodstock to the 2013 unveiling of Max’s design for the cruise ship Breakaway and the exquisite Masters series. This new exhibition speaks to the evolution and maturation of America’s most popular living Artist.

This carefully curated collection is a museum-like retrospective of Max’s works: Peter Max has painted for five U.S. Presidents and his art is on display in Museums, Presidential Libraries and in U.S. Embassies across the globe. He has been the Official Artist of the Grammy’s, five NFL Super Bowls, the 2006 Olympics, the World Cup USA, The World Series, The U.S. Open, The Indy 500, The NYC Marathon and The Kentucky Derby.
Peter Max was commissioned to create the program and cover and poster for this weekend’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony:
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
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 Richmond presentation.
Peter Max and his vibrant colors have become part of the fabric of contemporary culture. Max has been successively called a Pop Icon, Neo Fauvist, Abstract Expressionist and the United States “Painter Laureate.” The artist has had the distinct honor of painting the last seven Presidents of the United States and the world’s best loved celebrities, among them the young sensation Taylor Swift. This exhibit features his iconic and best-known pieces as well, among them “Statue of Liberty”, Max’s famous “Flag” pieces, “Umbrella Man” and the prestigious “Cosmic Runner”. There will also be presentations of his celebrity portraiture, as Peter Max is revered for his celebrity commissions and portraits.
