Maxfield Parrish (July 25, 1870 – March 30, 1966) was a highly celebrated American artist who specialized in painting and illustration and was quite active during early 20th century. He had a unique neo-classical imagery and a cleverly use of intense hues that made his artistic works stand out. Because of his many creative pieces, his business acumen and the kind of quality he delivered, Parrish at some point became the highest earning commercial painter. He was born Frederick Parrish but he would later adopt Maxfield, his paternal grandmother's maiden name, which he proceeded to use professionally. Parrish was born to a painter father called Stephen Parrish. He started drawing as a child and was able to develop his skills fast since he received the support of his parents. Parrish studied at Haverford College, beginning 1888. He later went to Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts before going to Drexel Institute of Art, Science & Industry. His 1901-02 tour of diverse parts of American Southwest is believed to have been of immense influence on his color use in painting natural landscapes. Parrish worked consistently and took several other studies to hone his artistic skills. He was commissioned by several entities, with some of the works seeing him travel far and wide for research. Parrish worked for several advertisers, including Colgate, Edison-Mazda Lamps, Oneida Cutlery, and Fisk Tires. He was also commissioned by several popular publications, including Hearst's, Life, and Colliers. His artistic works covered diverse themes, transiting from nudes to landscapes. He used glazing technique in his art making, using diverse layers of colors separated by varnish. Parrish earned his respect for having developed his unique artistic style without being part of any traditional art movement. His works continue to sell at high prices with one of his pieces, Daybreak, selling for $7.6 million in a 2006 auction. Currently, there are numerous framed Maxfield Parrish art in diverse galleries globally.
