Very uncommon mid 1960s striking Op/Pop Art silkscreen on mylar, originally from the Allan Stone Gallery - in it's vintage frame. Signed and numbered from the limited edition of only 50 -- very difficult to find! Peter Gee (1932–2005) was a British-born artist who spent most of his life living and working in New York City. He was active in the pop art movement of the 60s. Gee was born on July 23, 1932 in Leicestershire, England. He was interested in drawing as a child and worked as a graphic designer for the British army when he joined at the age of 18. Upon leaving the army, he attended the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. By the end of the 50s, he had exhibited at the Denise Rene Gallery in Paris, where he lived briefly, and the Axiom Gallery in London. He came to the US in 1962.
Throughout the 60s, Gee experienced a high degree of success as a pop artist in Manhattan. His work from this era has been collected by The Museum of Modern Art in both New York City and Kyoto, The Smithsonian and the Library of Congress in Washington DC, and The Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Gee exhibited with Andy Warhol and Robert Indiana for the "Word and Image" show in 1968 at the Museum of Modern Art. During this time, he was also teaching classes at the New School, the School of Visual Arts, and the Harvard Architectural School.
