Discovering Maxfield Parrish
We’re starting the week with something caffeinated and a look at the work of Maxfield Parrish, an American painter and illustrator active in the first half of the 20th century, who is known for his idealized neo-classical imagery.
His exacting attention to detail preceded the Photorealist and Hyper-Realist art movements, and his abundant imagination and love of fantasy elements has been an inspiration to many artists.
Parrish was considered one of the most successful and famous of the illustrators and painters during the Golden Age of Illustration, with artist Norman Rockwell referring to him as "my idol."
