Since the weather's so cold, let's enjoy some of Maxfield Parrish's luminous winter landscapes...
|Moonlit Night: Winter|
Parrish (1870-1966) spent most of his life as a commercial illustrator - magazines, advertisments, calendars, children's books etc. - before ending his career as a landscape artist. He was immensely prolific and made an absolute fortune from his work, which was incredibly popular with the general public: the most popular art print of the 20th Century is his Daybreak of 1922.
He achieved his rich effects through careful layering of paints and varnishes. His snowscapes are just psychedelic!
