About the Artist: Maxfield Parrish was an American artist and illustrator known for his prints and paintings of whimsical mythological scenes. During his career, Parrish produced work for Harper’s Bazaar, Life, General Electric, and illustrated books by L. Frank Baum. The artist deftly captured light with a precise yet surreal intensity, by using many layers of saturated glazes over a tonal underpainting, as evinced in his work Daybreak (1922). “The hard part is how to plan a picture so as to give to others what has happened to you,” he once reflected. “To render in paint an experience, to suggest the sense of light and colour, of air and space.” Born Frederick Parrish on July 25, 1870 in Philadelphia, PA, he was the son of painter Stephen Parrish
