Maxfield Parrish executed scenic paintings for the Brown & Bigelow Publishing Company for 27 years, from 1936 to 1963. The paintings were originally just summer scenes, but soon also included an annual winter scene.
The B&B company reproduced the landscape paintings on everything from calendars, to note cards, to greeting and executive cards.
A recurring Parrish summer theme consisted of bright blue skies with towering white thunderheads in the background. A lovely example from among the many is this 1956 painting which Parrish called River Bank.
Brown & Bigelow published it in 1960 as a summer calendar and named it Sheltering Oaks.
