Peter Max (b. 1937 German/American.) The lithograph, "Red Sail" was produced in 1981 and depicts an abstract scene of two profiles facing a man in bellbottoms jumping over a red sailboat. The image size is 20.5" x 26," signed "Max" in the lower right and in the lower left in colored pencil is the word "study." Generally, a study is a practice piece that may experiment with the exact composition and colors. In the lower left of this piece are additionally drawn highlight lines/embellishments, omitted from later work, that make this a rare piece. Peter Max hand-colored this important and rare lithograph titled "Red Sails" with colored pencil and graphite to arrive at his final composition for the full printing. It is matted, framed and measues 28" x 32.5." This is a one of a kind "study" where the artist used color pencils and drew highlight lines. Peter Max had extra prints made from the regular edition to do one of a kind works - this is one of those.
