"Neo Man Blue," by Peter Max is on the local
auction block to benefit Bishop Museum.

Bidding to the Max

If you've got at least $100,000 and are a lover of fine art, you might want to submit a bid for Peter Max's painting "Neo Man Blue."

The 5-by-6-foot art piece is owned by Rolf Winkler, owner of The Patisserie, and he is offering part of the proceeds to the Bishop Museum.


The silent auction will be 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at the museum's Hawaiian Hall.

Pop artist Max first became known in the 1960s for work using bright colors in unconventional combinations. He has done "celebrity" pieces similar to those of Andy Warhol, such as his "100 portraits" of President Bill Clinton.

For more information about the auction call the Bishop Museum at 848-4187.
