The calendar art of Maxfield Parrish (1870-1966) and his covers for Collier's , Ladies' Home Journal, and other magazines in the early decades of the 20th century look include some of the classics of American prints & murals and the Art Deco design aesthetic. Featuring 145 color plates and 30 photographs, this snazzy showcase of Maxfield Parrish's art will please both fans and collectors. The book explores the ambitious scope of Parrish's murals such as the extensive Florentine Fete murals and The Pied Piper, the dazzling tonalities of his book illustrations, the magical flavor of his children's pictures, and the dignity and beauty of his paintings of the American southwest. Maxfield Parrish: The Masterworks stands as the authoritative collection of Parrish’s best works and brings together the most popular and important of Parrish’s paintings, prints, and murals including Dinkey Bird, Interlude, and the sublime Daybreak, which sold for a record $4.25 million at a Sotheby’s auction in 1996. Also included are some of Parrish’s lesser-known works, through which we see the development of the artist’s style and technique. Through historical analysis, contemporary news clippings, and letters from the artist himself, we get to know the genius behind the artwork. The author Alma Gilbert, founder and director of the Maxfield Parrish Museum in Plainfield, N.H., is considered one of the premier authorities on Maxfield Parrish. Gilbert devotes a chapter to Parrish's technique, reprints several of his witty letters and discusses his extramarital affair with live-in companion and model Susan Lewin. In 1998, she opened the Cornish Colony Gallery and Museum in Cornish, New Hampshire, which houses the largest collection of original Parrish oil paintings available for public viewing.
