The painting above was published in color by Collier’s Magazine as the cover of their edition of November 20, 1909. Appropriately, the painting is entitled “Thanksgiving”. Done as an oil on stretched paper, the technique commonly used by Parrish during this period, it is signed with tiny “M P” initials in the lower right. It is pictured still in Parrish’s signature black painted frame which he made in his own workshop on the first floor of his studio.
Parrish’s workshop included both woodworking and metal working lathes, and was said to be the envy of every machinist in the entire Upper Valley area of New Hampshire and Vermont.
The artist has characterized himself as the successful hunter heading home as proud as could be for bagging such a great Thanksgiving meal!
