2018 Maxfield Parrish Exhibit & Sale!

AUGUST 2018

The Mill Pond
Oil on Board. 1945. Private Collection.

For the August web site, I’ve decided to show the Parrish landscape painting which, according to his publisher The Brown & Bigelow Company, was rated number one in sales among the many landscapes which he did for them.  Brown & Bigelow used Parrish’s landscape paintings for their annual summer calendars from 1936 to 1963. The Mill Pond (above) was executed by Parrish in 1945, and illustrated the B&B summer calendar for the year 1948.

Parrish landscape paintings such as Evening Shadows (aka The Old White Birch) and the second most popular painting simply called  Evening (both of which I sold to private collectors) have recently crossed the auction blocks in excess of a million dollars each. However The Mill Pond has not appeared for sale since I appraised it many years ago.

  1. Dear Alma, I was just sharing my copy of the book you wrote on Maxfield and Sue Lewin and telling them them of you’re encouragement and support .We met at you’re gallery in Burlingame in the late 1980’s and you had a display of my drawings and paintings. I still remember how amazed I was to find you’re gallery filled with original Parrish paintings and Rembrandt prints. Being able to study those pieces and the insights that you shared have been a great inspiration in my work. I often use the technique of a blue ​under painting as Parri​sh did. Thank you for you’re work in advancing the appreciation of his work. You can see examples of some of my pieces on my web site.

    Hoping all is well with you,

    Richard

  2. I just discovered your site while looking up exhibits of the works of Maxfield Parrish, many of our fall traveling customers are asking where they can see these at a museum? I was trying to answer their questions? I know you had a beautiful collection as I remember as you personally gave me a tour when the museum was open in Windsor VT near my diner. We miss you!

    • Theresa! Lovely hearing from you! There are no Parrish exhibits currently. All the Parrish I advertise on my website are available for sale by their owners. You might like to see “Hunt Farm” the Parrish original that is owned by Dartmouth College. It’s in their museum. The State Library in Concord, NH dedicated a room in honor of all those years I spent bringing paintings to the museum both in Windsor, VT and in Cornish, NH. There are some prints, books as well as art that I gave them to put into the room. That might still be available to be seen. Thank you for remembering my husband and I. We had many happy meals in your diner. Parrish also frequented it, but that was before your time. ags
