Maxfield Parrish: Window to the Other World

The paintings by Maxfield Parrish always transform me to my early childhood and its world of fantasy. He came into my attention for the first time when I laid my eyes on his wonderful Lantern Bearers painting.

During the Golden Age of Illustration, Maxfield Parrish's "beautiful settings and charming figures" enchanted the American public. His work includes immense murals in office buildings and hotels, magazine covers, and advertisements as well as his book illustrations. Many of his illustrations to children's books, still popular today, are the result of his struggle to make a living as an artist in his early years around the turn of the 20th century.
