Moonlit Summer Nights
Dear friends, collectors and Parrish enthusiasts:
I thought our viewers would enjoy the image called Deep Woods, Moonlight, a seldom seen Parrish landscape painted in 1916. The model is Sue Lewin and the scene captures the magic of a still, quiet grove of trees illuminated by the serenity of moonlight filtering through the thickness of the woods.
It reminds me of the sentence in one of the letters which Parrish wrote 20 years later to the young lady Nancy Roelker with whom he had fallen deeply in love late in his life (see my book: The Secret Letters). His description of a bright moonlit night at The Oaks is a classic.
“Moonlight, such moonlight! It was like a blue day outside.”
