Second edition. A book based on the exhibition: "Maxfield Parrish: The Retrospective" curated by the co-author. Per dust jacket, the purpose of the exhibition & the book was "to change [the] impression [that Parrish was "merely an illustrator"] with a presentation of paintings and drawings that embody the artist's long career and extraordinary accomplishments." 144 reproductions of the works of Parrish, in watercolor, pen and ink, oil, and occasional other media, along with photographs of Parrish's studio, models, and various other persons associated with him. Included are preliminary studies, and original states with variants: for ex, the "Dream Garden" appears as an oil study and as the finished glass mosaic by Tiffany; "Reveries" appears as a painting and as a magazine cover proof. The illustrations include early items, and follow in chronological order, clearly showing the evolution of his style. With introductory biographical material, a chronological table of Parrish's life, a select bibliography, and an index of artworks. xii, 164 pages. cloth, dust jacket. 4to..

It was estimated in the 1920s that one out of four homes in America had one of Parrish's make-believe illustrations on the wall, and he remains one of our best-loved illustrators. This unique work, a celebration of "Parrish Blue" water and skies, hued hills, and young women draped in classical garments, is the result of a 1995 traveling exhibit, "Maxfield Parrish: A Retrospective." The Cutlers, he an architect and she a gallery owner, were instrumental in working with the Parrish Family Trust to put together that international exhibit to commemorate the artist's 125th birthday. The Cutlers were able to locate numerous items in private collections for the exhibit. Many of the 130 color plates are of these works, never reproduced before, while better-known pieces are lavishly reproduced from the original paintings rather than prints. The Parrish family offered rare photos for the biographical text, which is supplemented with a reminiscence by granddaughter Joanna Maxfield Parrish. Highly recommended for all collections.?Joseph C.
