About Maxfield Parrish (1870-1966)
A meticulous craftsman, Maxfield Parrish's idiosyncratic painting method involved applying numerous layers of thin, transparent oil, alternating with varnish over stretched paper, yielding a combination of great luminosity and extraordinary detail. In his hands, this method gives the effect of a glimpse through a window, except that the scene viewed is from a fairytale world. In spite of the amount of time taken to perfect a painting, Parrish was prolific over the course of his career.
His diverse scenes included childrens books at the turn of the century, as well as calendar landscapes from the 1930s to the 1960s. He is also responsible for the murals in the famous King Cole Lounge at the St. Regis Hotel in New York City.
