Maxfield Parrish — Maxfield Parrish was one of the greatest American painters and illustrators of the 20th century. Brilliant blue skies, pastoral landscapes, and captivating figures are his art’s signature characteristics. The scope of his work was enormous, including covers for magazines, theater sets, paintings, and photographs, as well as murals and graphic work ranging from posters to calendars. Throughout his long career, Parrish’s use of the latest technical innovations fostered an exploration of the relationship between fine and commercial art. These advances also allowed reproductions of Parrish’s art to find their way into most American homes during the first three decades of the 20th century. There have been few American artists whose works are so easily recognizable. Although his artwork was dismissed by the critical art world at the time of his death, it has recently enjoyed a renewed interest by contemporary artists and critics. DVD. 45 minutes.
