We are pleased to bring this classic work back into print. A compendium of the life and work of Maxfield Parrish, it is an essential part of a Parrish library. For the collector, the publisher has included a value guide to some of the products that bear Parrish images. 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 In addition, there is a lengthy excerpt from an unpublished manuscript by Maxfield Parrish, Jr., explaining step-by-step his father's glazing technique and use of photography in his work. This definitive study also contains numerous revealing excerpts from Parrish's unpublished correspondence with family, friends, and clients.… (mais)

My parents tell me that long before I learned to read, I loved the prints of Parrish's work collected in this book. However my tastes changed as I grew up, these images still entrances me. The artist portrayed both human figures and landscapes with layers of light and focused details that caught my imagination. As a teenager, I finally read the book itself and learned a bit about the artist's life, his techniques, and his place in art history. While that content is fine, the prints of the artist's work remain the obvious highlights of this volume. ( )

A comprehensive survey of the artist's work, it covers not just his paintings, but also his posters, advertising and magazine and book illustration and the murals. Very well illustrated and with a comprehensive text it chronicles the artist's development and his vast array of work.

One of the most interesting chapters is that which explains in detail the methods Parrish employed to achieve his remarkable results. This includes his use of photography and the painstaking glazing techniques he employed.

A very interesting and useful publication; it is not one that sits idly on my book shelf. ( )

Interesting account of Parrish's life, work, methods, and context. His masterpiece, "Daybreak" - fine art in 1922, and the most popular art print of the 20th century (often cited as "one for every four American homes") - counts as kiddie-porn in today's climate of anxiety: the naked girl is his daughter Jean, who was eleven years old. Here in the 21st century, not only could he not sell that to the American public, he'd have to do some fancy talking to keep himself out of jail.

Times change.

(Parrish sold the original for $10,000; and made something like $150,000 in print royalties in the first three years. In the '20s.)

Fun Fact: the reclining girl in "Daybreak" is Kitty Owen, William Jennings Bryan's granddaughter (!), and seems to also be about 11.
