About this title

Synopsis:

Now in its third edition, THE MASTERWORKS stands as the authoritative collection of Parrish’s best works. Compiled by long-time 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 Fete murals, the amazing Interlude, and the sublime Daybreak, which sold for a record $4.25 million at a Sotheby’s auction in 1996. 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 the genius behind the artwork. Updated with all the current Parrish scholarship, this new edition of THE MASTERWORKS continues the grand tradition of celebrating Parrish’s work and bringing his oeuvre to the public.

About the Author:

ALMA GILBERT is considered one of the premier authorities on Parrish. In 1998, she opened the Cornish Colony Gallery and Museum in Cornish, New Hampshire, which houses the largest collection of original Parrish oils available for public viewing. She currently lives at the Oaks, Parrish’s former property in Plainfield, New Hampshire.
