Acclaimed American illustrator Maxfield Parrish (1877 – 1966) created romanticized images aglow with magical colors and light. Learning to draw while recovering from typhoid fever, Parrish was inspired by the Old Masters and Pre-Raphaelites. He painstakingly created historic and romantic scenes using a geometric format called Dynamic Symmetry, and his brilliant colors were so admired that one was named “Parrish Blue” in his honor. For four decades, Parrish illustrated publications, ads, calendars and greeting cards. He single-handedly shaped the Golden Age of Illustration, and no other major artist has successfully copied his techniques.
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper is acid free with a smooth surface.
