Maxfield Parrish : A Retrospective
(Laurence S. Cutler, Judy Goffman Cutler, Maxfield Parrish )
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.

Maxfield Parrish : The Masterworks
(Alma Gilbert, Maxfield Parrish)
We have expanded the original edition of this splendid celebration of the work of Maxfield Parrish, with some works recently rediscovered by museums and collectors. There are 28 completely new color plates made from original paintings, along with 30 photographs by Parrish. New pieces in this edition includes ROMANCE from THE KNAVE OF HEARTS, with jewel-like tones and delicate chiaroscuro, and the seldom seen PHOEBUS IN HALZAPHRON, a monochromatic work of searing purity. No collection of his work at this level of quality exists anywhere

Maxfield Parrish and the Illustrators of the Golden Age
(Margaret E. Wagner, Maxfield Parrish )

A look at the life and work of one of the best and most successful artists who worked in magazine illustration features eighty-five full-color and ten black-and-white reproductions of his work.
