The death of Ms. Max, 52, in the home she shared with Mr. Max, 81, comes in the midst of continued infighting in recent years regarding her husband’s legacy.

In May, The New York Times wrote about how business associates and his son, Adam, had taken control of Mr. Max’s studio, with the intention of increasing production using assistant artists even though Mr. Max himself had not painted seriously in four years, according to nine people with direct knowledge of his condition.

Mr. Max’s psychedelic renderings helped define the hippie aesthetic of the 1960s and 1970s. In recent years, his brightly coloured works regularly sold for five figures in auctions, The Times reported.

Mary Max, nee Balkin, was born on Oct. 20, 1966, and raised in Buffalo, N.Y. In 1996, she was walking on a Manhattan sidewalk, when Mr. Max, already an internationally renowned artist and 30 years her senior, walked up and said, “Hi, I’m Peter Max, and I’ve been painting your profile my entire life.”

They married a year later.

Mr. Max had two children from a first marriage, Adam Cosmo and Libra Astro. The children had significant shares in Mr. Max’s studio, which is named ALP after his and their first names. He and Mary Max had no children together.

By 2012, The Times reported, Mr. Max’s mental faculties were beginning to wane and he struggled to create art. Adam, The Times reported, began to take a more active role in the studio.

Ms. Max became concerned and in 2015, she asked the Supreme Court of the State of New York to appoint a guardian to oversee her husband’s business. She told the court she was being followed by private investigators and once was stopped on the street by men warning her to stop interfering in the studio.

Ms. Max also told the court that Adam had taken custody of his father and concealed his whereabouts from friends and family, according to court filings.
