by Alma M. Gilbert and Maxfield Parrish. I bought this book and I never regret of getting another Parrish art book again. This artbook is excellent with deep details of Parrish's way of study through his paintings. Theories based on his view of perspective and composition, it is something great to read about! However, one little thing I personally find missing is the "Dream Days" series, that is missing from this artbook and should have been included. Otherwise, get the book and you'll fall in love with Parrish blue all over again. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 20 years ago.

Although Maxfield Parrish was not known as a regular church goer, perhaps attending services on Christmas, New . The study for a poster for Scribner’s Magazine was early in Parrish’s career, in 1897.

Although Maxfield Parrish was not known as a regular church goer, perhaps attending services on Christmas, New Year’s or for some special holiday celebration, he was fond of the architecture of three churches in particular: The Plainfield Church along that town’s main street in New Hampshire as well as the two closest churches across the river in Vermont: Norwich and the. one in Windsor.

Luminous landscapes. Stunning scenery. Courageous colors. All this and more describes the amazing body of work by one of America’s most popular artists, Maxfield Parrish. Now in its third edition with updated pricing, ownership, and trends, The Masterworks stands as the authoritative collection of Parrish’s best works. Compiled by longtime Parrish expert and curator Alma Gilbert, The Masterworks brings together the most popular, most important, and most fanciful of Parrish’s paintings. Here you’ll find the glorious Dinkey Bird, the extensive Florentine Fête murals, the amazing Interlude, and the sublime Daybreak. 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 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 Parrish’s work, and bringing his oeuvre to the public.

This wonderful book divides Maxfield Parrish's (1870-1966) work into seven sections: book illustrations; Southwest; magazines; Edison Mazda calendars; murals; House of Art prints; and landscapes. The large 12x10½ inch page size enhances the images, many of which are in color. There is a four page color foldout of Parrish’s “Dream Garden”, the 100,000 piece Tiffany Favrile glass mosaic mural (15x49 feet) installed in Philadelphia’s Curtis Center. There is discussion about Susan Lewin, the model Parrish used in many of his works, including her representation in almost all of the 200 faces shown in the eighteen panels which make up “The Florentine Fete” murals. There is discussion and some photos of “The Oaks” where Parrish lived and worked, the attempt to make it into a museum for his artwork, and its destruction by fire. Chapter 10 describes Parrish's technique. It states that he painted by layers, each color to a different layer, with the base coat often being transparent ultramarine blue, with a coating of Copal Picture Varnish between each layer. He claimed the technique let each color "glow", and mixing colors prevented that glow. Great examples of his color contrast are the reds/greens in the 1925 paintings, "Manager Draws the Curtain", and, "The End" (Figs. 2.1 and 2.35) for the "Knave of Hearts" book. Again, the color choice, gradation and contrast shown in his landscape paintings (Figs. 8.2 to 8.10) are amazing. The book indicates that the timing was right for Parrish. New printing technology permitted better, less expensive color replication. And, he capitalized on contracts that provided mass productions of his paintings for calendars, advertisements, and books. He was paid well for his work, and managed to get the rights to many of his paintings. He was so well known, that it was estimated that 1 in 4 homes had a copy of "Daybreak" (1922, Fig. 7.12). Well written, very nice photos, and a great reference.
This greatly under-appreciated American artist deserves so much more recognition than he is given. Part of his stigma is that he is still seen by many as simply a commercial illustrator, when in fact, he is so much more. His palette, his composition, his attention to detail make him so much more than an illustrator. His audience may have been different than, say, Jackson Pollock's or Mark Rothko, but his influence and his effect on the viewer is no less profound. And for those who feel Parrish's work is simply "product," I say ALL art is product. Whether you're trying to sell soap, emotion or simply yourself, you're still selling something. The book itself is insightful, beautifully laid out and gives you a glimpse into a timeless world.
This is a beautiful book, but I am disappointed by how few of his landscapes are represented, and all toward the back. Essentially the first 2/3 of the book are not what I would have chosen to buy had I been able to examine the book in advance and this was not clear to me from the description. If you like just the posters, you'll probably like the book.
If you like Max Parrish, a must have. Incredible compilation of his outstanding & unusual art!

The book arrived prior to Christmas and on time as promised. As well, I was completely happy with the condition of the book being as described.
A great gift to my sister!
This lovely book was a gift for my brother who is an afficianado of this artist and found the book a wonderful addition to his library. The quality of the plates and comprehensiveness of the book is what attracted me to it. I live in Vermont, near the Plainfield homestead and as I recall the book included information about the artist's life and work while residing there.
The book has a lot about Gilbert, and, strangely, the plates are not sequential. Sometimes paintings are mentioned by name without reference to plate number, so you have to flip pages to find what you're looking for and to determine whether it is there at all. For those interested in Parrish, the stories are entertaining and the graphics production is very good.
