Book summary

Luminous landscapes. Stunning scenery. Courageous colors. All this and more describes the amazing body of work by one of Americas most popular artists, Maxfield Parrish. Now in its third edition with updated pricing, ownership, and trends, The Masterworks stands as the authoritative collection of Parrishs best works. Compiled by longtime Parrish expert and curator Alma Gilbert, The Masterworks brings together the most popular, most important, and most fanciful of Parrishs paintings. Here youll find the glorious Dinkey Bird, the extensive Florentine Fte murals, the amazing Interlude, and the sublime Daybreak. Also included are some of Parrishs lesser-known works, through which we see the development of the artists style and technique. Through historical analysis, contemporary news clippings, and letters from the artist himself, we get to know Parrish the man, discovering the genius behind the artwork. Updated with all the current Parrish information, this new edition of The Masterworks continues the grand tradition of celebrating Parrishs work, and bringing his oeuvre to the public. [via]
