2018 Maxfield Parrish Exhibit & Sale!

SEPTEMBER 2018

It’s September and school is in session.

School Days (aka “Alphabet”) 1908
Private Collection

Maxfield Parrish twice captured the mood of the back to school feeling with a pair of covers in color for Collier’s Magazine. The first appeared in the September 12, 1908 issue. For this, Parrish photographed his young son Dillwyn sitting on a gate post at his estate The Oaks, and inserted him into the whimsical cover called “School Days”. 

 

 

 

 

 

The second color cover appeared for the Collier’s issue of September 30, 1911, and Parrish’s typical humorous approach was again evident in his 1909 painting called “Arithmetic”.

Arithmetic – 1909
Private Collection

We thought our readers would enjoy these reminders of Mr. Parrish and the witty humor which was such a characteristic part of his life to all those who knew him.

  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
