Peter's publications include a series of important reference books on American art, such as the Exhibition Record Series, which William Gerdts, dean of American art historians, calls “the most important basis for art historical research in late 19th to mid 20th century American art.”
Peter is also a pioneer in the publishing of auction indices tracking the art market. In 1981 he published the first index to photographs sold at auction, entitled The Photographic Art Market. During the 1990s he served as the Editor-in-Chief of the three major online art information companies, developing their databanks of auction price records and artist biographies. During the early 2000s, his monthly feature, “Market Watch,” ran in Art + Auction magazine.
