Darien, CT – (March, 2014) – A newly-curated retrospective collection by artist legend, Peter Max, will be on exhibition and available for acquisition at Geary Gallery, www.gearygallery.com in Darien, CT.

The gallery welcomes all Peter Max enthusiasts and collectors as their invited guests for special live appearances by the Artist.

Exhibit previews begin on Saturday, April 26, 2014 and Peter Max will make special artist appearances at Geary Gallery on Saturday May 3rd, 2014 from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm and Sunday, May 4th from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm.  Admission for all registered guests is complimentary.  RSVP’s are required and information appears below.

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 new exquisite Marilyn 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 Presidential Libraries and in U.S. Embassies across the globe.   He has been the Official Artist of 5 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.

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 Artists’ illustrious career, as well as to his formidable training at the 130 year old Art Students League of New York.

With paintings on exhibition in hundreds of museums and galleries worldwide, 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.
