Hollow glass piece. The bottom half (whose end is flat and thus serves as a base) is a solid spring green separated by a band of translucent yellow. The top half is a darker olive green with a Kelly green stripe that winds from the yellow band at center to the hole at this end of the piece.
(Abstract, organic shape. Meaning of title is unclear. Perhaps taken from an anagram.)
Lithograph print on white paper. In the center, a very bulbous teapot, with a large conical mouth and protruding spout, is depicted in crude outline and filled in with patchy dark brown. To the right is a banana and the outline of an apple. A gray background fills the space around the objects and trails off into the white paper at the edges.
Still life with teapot and fruit, executed in a late Cubist style. The emphasis is on a minimal representation of space and objects.
Three large, rectangular blocks of translucent green glass hang in vertical succession on a newtwork of copper rods. The glass has bubbles embedded within it and shows evidence of the sandcasting process.
This abstract sculpture is dedicated to the artist's son, Benjamin, and represents hope for his future.
This print is constructed of five horizontal bands of color with a semicircular shape at the top center. The bottom-most band depicts tightly clustered organic shapes with dark borders. The next band has a short, thick, curving line in the center, and a couple other dark organic lines above it. The third and middle band has some hatching and some circular shapes. The fourth band, or the second band from the top, is made up of horizontal lines, with many hatched vertical lines over top of them, reminiscent of grass. The top most band depicts a cellular-like structure, consisting of a diamond pattern. The semicircular shape at the top cuts through the top band, and juts partially into the band underneath it. The semicircle has an organic, circular line formation in the center.
According to the National Collection of Fine Arts' exhibition catalog Gabor Peterdi: Forty-five Years of Printmaking, Peterdi's work consistently reflects themes of man, nature, and their interrelationships. Additionally, his work his highly influenced by his travels to Mexico, South America, Hawaii, and Alaska. These themes and experiences work together to create sensitive images designed to evoke a sense of continuity and a reaffirmation of life.
Square composition with large gray area and the remaining area has a series of curvilinear, multi-colored stripes. The largest stripes are yellow and straight- one runs from the lower left corner and tapers off in the upper right corner of the square; the other runs from the upper left corner and tapers off in the lower right corner. The other stripes, in shades of orange, red, blue and purple, radiate from the yellow stripes like the spokes of a fan.
