Description

Maxfield Parrish’s art was “a combination of beautiful colors, skillful drawing, fanciful worlds and creatures to inhabit them, and through it all a humorous yet human approach to life.” Parrish’s work was featured on the cover of Collier’s fifty times between 1904 and 1936, also contributing to Harper’s Weekly, Scribner’s, Life, Hearst’s, and Ladies’ Home Journal. Shown here is one of Parrish’s most celebrated magazine images: “The Frog Prince.”
