October 22nd marks the first time in two decades Peter Max has presented a major collection of works in a New York City gallery. One of the world’s most beloved artists of the last four decades, Peter Max will present his newest collection at POP International Galleries’ Midtown location. Max’ muse for this epic return? The glamorous sex goddess, Marilyn Monroe.
Max is back with an electrifying collection of over 40 one-of-a-kind new works of Miss Monroe. In each painting he uses an iconic photograph of this Hollywood legend taken by the great fashion photographer Milton Greene, whose well-known friendship with Monroe produced these gorgeous photographs. Peter brings his unique colors and brushstrokes to this new body of work, dramatically lighting up and bringing a whole new perspective to Greene’s renowned images.
“To have POP International Galleries host the return of the POP art icon Peter Max to New York is a rare honor. Add Marilyn Monroe to the mix, with Peter’s already unmistakably vibrant palette, and you have a legendary show on your hands!” said Jeff Jaffe, owner, POP International Galleries. “When people see these spectacular works, they will understand why Peter Max has remained at the top of his game for decades. They are simply amazing.”
With paintings on exhibition in hundreds of museums and galleries worldwide, Peter Max and his energetic colors have become part of the fabric of contemporary culture. Often referred to as America’s, "Painter Laureate", Max has had the distinct honor of painting the last six Presidents of the United States, as well as some of the world's most notable figures from heads of state to professional athletes, musicians and stars of stage and screen.
The Opening Night of the exhibition will be on Tuesday, October 22nd from 5 – 8pm with Peter Max and special guests in attendance at Pop International MIDTOWN.
