A compendium of the life and work of Maxfield Parrish, this book is an essential part of a Parrish library. Examples of Parrish’s most famous book illustrations are shown, including selections from Mother Goose in Prose and the Arabian Nights. Also included are his famous magazine covers – from Life, Collier’s, Harper’s Weekly, etc., as well as all the landscapes that he painted for Brown and Bigelow, who reproduced them as calendars every year from 1936 to 1963. One of the highlights of the book is the chapter on Parrish’s technique, examining in depth his materials, favorite methods, and unique way of painting. In addition, there is a lengthy excerpt from an unpublished manuscript by Maxfield Parrish, Jr., explaining step-by-step his father’s glazing technique and use of photography in his work. This definitive study also contains numerous revealing excerpts from Parrish’s unpublished correspondence with family, friends, and clients.
