From the publisher:
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. 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.
