Maxfield Parrish, 1870-1966 by Sylvia Yount( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 1,113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maxfield Parrish has long been considered one of the most popular American artists of the twentieth century. Brilliant blue skies, pastoral landscapes, and captivating figures are his art's signature characteristics. Yet the universal interest in Parrish's art has, in the past, hindered his work from receiving scholarly attention. Maxfield Parrish 1870-1966 offers a critical look at his life and career." "As an artist who produced images intended for a mass audience, Parrish's widespread appeal has been the most defining aspect of his reputation. His breadth was enormous; covers for magazines such as Harper's Bazar, Scribners, Century, and Life; book jackets; theater sets; paintings; photographs; murals in fine hotels like New York's St. Regis; and graphic work ranging from posters to calendars." "This extensive look at the life and career of Maxfield Parrish is realized in the insightful texts of Sylvia Yount and Mark F. Bockrath. Including a wealth of never-before-published full-color illustrations, and a discussion of the physical construction of Parrish's paintings and his unique techniques. Maxfield Parrish 1870-1966 will appeal to readers who enjoy the purely aesthetic nature of Parrish's art, as well as to those interested in the more critical assessment of his place in the history of American art."--Jacket

Maxfield Parrish : a retrospective by Laurence S Cutler( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and Japanese and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maxfield Parrish has long been considered one of the greatest American illustrators of the twentieth century. In the early 1920s, when his works Garden of Allah and Daybreak were reproduced as art prints, he quickly became one of the best known and most beloved artists America had known and most beloved artists America had known or would ever know. His unmistakable paintings - characterized by "Parrish blue" water and skies, luminescent rocks and hills, and perfect-looking young women draped in flowing, classically inspired garments - are infused with a romantic and paradisiacal quality so entrancing that today's reproductions of them elicit the same infectious enthusiasm as when the first prints were released over seventy years ago. Until Judy Goffman Cutler, coauthor of this book, curated the international exhibit "Maxfield Parrish: A Retrospective," Parrish's paintings had rarely been shown as a group of fine art pieces, and because of this Parrish had been considered by critics to be "merely" an illustrator. The exhibition and this book serve to change that impression, with a presentation of paintings and drawings that embody the artist's long career and extraordinary accomplishments. Many of the artworks that appear in Maxfield Parrish: A Retrospective, have never been reproduced before. Other plates are especially significant because they reproduce for the first time the original painting - rather than prints made from them. Included are over 130 color plates and more than thirty black-and-white illustrations and historical photographs, along with an essay from Joanna Maxfield Parrish, the artist's granddaughter, and text by Laurence S. Cutler and Judy Goffman Cutler of the American Illustrators Gallery in New York City. Maxfield Parrish is one of America's greatest cultural treasures. Maxfield Parrish: A Retrospective, published in honor of the 125th anniversary of his birth, places his magnificent body of work in just that context. -- from dust jacket
