Peter Max, born in Berlin in 1937, spent most of his first ten years in Shanghai, and then traveled the world with his parents before immigrating to the US in 1953. Already an award-winning graphic artist and designer, Max burst on the cultural scene in the 1960s, first with his "psychedelic art" and then with a new concept, "cosmic art." Max, who works in many mediums, has been the official artist for the Grammy Awards, the New Orleans Jazz Festival, the Woodstock Music Festival and 5 Super Bowls. He has decorated a Boeing 747, a Dale Earnhardt racecar, and 265 murals on the US border. He has designed popular US and UN stamps, painted five US Presidents, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Mikhail Gorbachev, and the Dalai Lama. He painted individual portraits of 356 firefighters who lost their lives heroically on 9/11, presenting these portraits to the families, and then at President Bush's request designed 356 more for the firefighters' memorial. In 1896. In 1896, Hungarian-born Theodor Herzl (1860-1904) wrote Der Judenstaat (The Jewish State), which advocated the founding of a Jewish State in Palestine. He organized the Zionist World Congress in Basel, Switzerland in 1897, and Herzl was President of the Zionist Organization from 1897 to his death in 1904. In Europe, Herzl kept in contact with many leaders. In 1901, England offered the Jewish people land in British East Africa. This divided many Zionists who wanted a home in Palestine. Extreme worry over the dispute affected the health of the founder of modern Zionism and hastened his death in 1904 at the age of 44. Framed, not by the Gallery of History, to an overall size of 18¾ x 22¾. Minor chip at top rear of frame. Accompanied by Peter Max certificate of authenticity.
