PETER MAX POSTER OF JOHN LINDSAY CREATED IN 1968 WHILE LINDSAY WAS MAYOR OF NEW YORK This item is an original Peter Max poster created in 1968 featuring John Lindsay during the peak of his popularity as mayor of New York and a national figure in the political arena. Lindsay signed the poster in the center of the fourth row down, while the artist signed and dated it below that.
Peter Max was a ubiquitous Pop artist who was hugely popular, especially with college students. During the peak of his fame in the late 60's and early 70's, only Andy Warhol surpassed Peter Max in popularity. His art was also known as Psychedelic Art and was considered very avant garde for the times. John Lindsay was the popular mayor of New York City from 1966 to 1973. Articulate and handsome, Lindsay became a well known figure nationally, particularly when he ran unsuccessfully for the Presidency in 1972. The poster features the same photo of Lindsay in diagonal arrangements with three repeated backgrounds: a flurry of stars, pink lines of various sizes, and Sgt. Pepper-esque flowers on a blue background. The fourth pattern in the poster is a photo of the Statue of Liberty with black and white stripes emanating from the torch of the statue. In all, there are 20 boxes of images on the poster.
