The psychedelic images of Peter Max became popular during the 1960s and 70s at the height of the counter culture movement in the United States. His imagery was printed on cereal boxes and postal stamps and often depicted American symbols such as the Statue of Liberty. One such image is Mona Lisa, 1992, featuring a cropped Gioconda over a painterly background. Throughout his career, Pater Max has made commercially viable works to be sold at art auctions and through his gallery, building a multimillion estate.
