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.
