#286 - Peter Max Estimate: $5,000+

Princess Diana portrayed by pop artist Peter Max

One-of-a-kind original mixed-media artwork by Peter Max, 8.5 x 10, featuring a color photograph of Princess Diana during a trip to Africa affixed at the center, overpainted around the edges in psychedelic colors by Max (preserving her face), and similarly painted in the borders. Signed at the bottom in paint, "Max." Handsomely double-matted and framed to an overall size of 18.5 x 20. In fine condition. The consignor notes that he purchased this from a Red Cross benefit auction held shortly after Princess Diana's death; this was one in a series of many portraits Max did of the late princess. Of his famed subject, the artist related: 'There were so many facets of Princess Diana. One portrait was not enough; it took several paintings to capture her many wonderful aspects. It was truly a great honor to paint her. She was a warm, loving, compassionate person, a lady of exceptional style, grace and fashion and a regal princess.' A bold and vibrant pop culture piece from the great pop artist.
