Festival directors were thrilled when Peter Leventhal, one of San Miguel’s most respected artists, agreed to create a celebratory image for its 40th Anniversary. Peter Leventhal was born in New York City in 1939 and grew up in Brooklyn. His father was a textile designer. Peter loved the museums and libraries of the city, loved his father's studio, and taught himself to draw from old masterpieces in the New York Public Library print room. One of his greatest influences was German artist Max Beckmann. His early work is very polished and carefully rendered, though he gradually loosened into the expressionist exuberance he demonstrates today. He's had more than forty solo exhibitions in New York, France, Florida, and Mexico.
