About The Artist:

Peter Max was born in Berlin in 1937 was raised in Shanghai, China where he spent the first 10 years of his life. Max and his parents moved internationally multiple times throughout his childhood. He formed lasting impressions of Flash Gordon, Capitan Marvel, jazz, and was influenced by American comic books, radio broadcasts, and movies. In 1953, Max and his family moved to the United States, settling in New York City. After completing high school, Max studied painting at the Art Students League, where he focused on commercial illustration and the graphic arts.

During the 1960s, Max worked in his psychedelic photo collage period, which later gave way to his "cosmic" 60s style with its distinctive line work and bold color combinations. Inspired by his meditative, spiritual teachings, Max's cosmic art captured the imagination of a generation and launched Max into fame. As noted by Max himself, he began to create "cosmic imagery . . . that caught on right away, and before [I] knew it, I got an eight-page cover story in Life magazine." Starting in the 1970's Max fully focused on canvas painting. Max's work has been designated the Official Artist for the Grammy's, the New Orleans Jazz Festival and the Woodstock Music Festival. "Angel With Heart" is a signature Max work with vivid use of color and fluid lines. It would have been created just prior to his infamous September 11th series.
