Maxfield Parrish (1870-1966)
Study for Janion's Maple (Under Summer Skies)
• "'Only God can make a tree.' True enough, but I'd like to see him paint one." (as quoted in C. Ludwig, Maxfield Parrish, New York, 1973, p. 177) •
Maxfield Parrish is a name synonymous with the Golden Age of Illustration in American Art. His body of work represents some of the most widely recognized images of the 20th century, including his public mural commissions and his familiar storybook illustrations. The present work is a preliminary oil study for a larger work, Janion's Maple (Under Summer Skies), produced in 1956 and published in the 1959 Brown and Bigelow calendar. The artist himself assigned the work the title Janion's Maple, Under Summer Skies was the title assigned by Brown and Bigelow at the time of publication.
