Illustration (1970) by Peter Max.
This is one of the many artworks that Peter Max made throughout the decades of the 60s and 70s. His work is integrated into psychedelic art and pop art always associated with the arts and culture of those times.
In 1962, Max started a small Manhattan arts studio known as “The Daly & Max Studio,” with his friend Tom Daly. Daly and Max joined their friend and mentor, Don Rubbo, and the three worked as a group in books and advertising, for which they received recognition from the industry.
In 1970, many of Max’s products and posters were featured in the exhibition “The World of Peter Max,” which opened at the M.H. of Young Memorial Museum in San Francisco.
