Maxfield Parrish at the Currier

Now until January 10, the Currier Museum in Manchester has an exhibit of the work of Maxfield Parrish. Parrish was one of most popular artists of his time, and much of his work was done for advertising purposes.

Parrish illustrated the Poems of Childhood by Eugene Field. We have a reproduction in our children's room [J 811 FIE] and we have another book on his life and work in the adult collection Maxfield Parrish, 1870-1966 by Sylvia Yount [760 YOU].

Parrish settled in New Hampshire and lived in our state for 40 years. He was a celebrated member of the Cornish Colony of artists, which is written about in New Hampshire's Cornish Colony by Fern K. Meyers [ebook].
