Maxfield Parrish – American painter & illustrator.

Maxfield Parrish (1870 – 1966) was an American painter and illustrator. He’s a levers-pusher : his work is too much something. Obviously.

You’ll find your too much, right? Too fairy-talish. Too colored. Too cute. You almost want to poke his shoulder : “Are you sure??”. I found his melancholic portrait too…

But this toomuchy guy makes you dig until you find little gems, winter landscapes and other Wyeth-esque (the grandfather) adventures. His works influenced movie posters and album sleeves (yeahhh Enya). Some Roger Dean‘s for Yes, too…

Yesss, childhood…

Norman Rockwell had an idol. Guess who…

 

Thanks for reading!
