Max’s Art Students League scholarly influence inspired all of his extraordinary artwork, and of late, his new Masters series; his interpretive works of Vincent Van Gogh, Monet, Pablo Picasso, Renoir, and Edgar Degas, conceived in Max’s signature style and colors.
These works speak to both a maturation of the artist’s illustrious career, as well as to his formidable training at the 130-year-old Art Students League of New York.
Important pieces of the Retrospective Collection and the Masters Series will be available for acquisition in the Key West presentation.
