Peter Max is America's most well known and most collected artist. He is well known for his paintings of iconic Americana. His psychedelic, multi-dimensional paintings of historical landmarks in American culture have maintained their signature style and flare throughout his multi-decade career. Max's art has appeared on a Boeing 777 Continental jumbo jet, the 1999 Woodstock stage and a giant mural at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

Max has achieved his place in history having painted for various Heads of State. Often incorporating iconic symbols of America into his work, Max has painted for six U.S. presidents, and created the official artwork and poster for the Clinton Inauguration. His "Flag With Heart" impressionistic paintings of the American flag are permanent installations in the Carter, Reagan and Bush presidential libraries in addition to his Statue of Liberty paintings, which have become an annual painting tradition since America's Bicentennial in 1976, and led to Max playing a lead role in the renovation of the Statue of Liberty.
