This informative program presents a look at the greatest works of art created by this extraordinary artist.

Maxfield Parrish (1870-1966) was one of the greatest American painters and illustrators of the 20th century. Brilliant blue skies, pastoral landscapes and captivating figures are his art s signature characteristic. The scope of his work was enormous, including covers for magazines, theater sets, paintings, photographs, as well as murals and graphic work ranging from posters to calendars.

Throughout his long career, Parrish s use of the latest technical innovations fostered an exploration of the relationship between fine and commercial art. These technical advances also allowed reproductions of Parrish s art to find their way into most American homes during the first three decades of the twentieth century. There have been few American artists whose works are so easily recognizable. Although his artwork was dismissed by the critical art world at the time of his death, it has recently enjoyed a renewed interest by contemporary artists and critics.
