Patron Published Project: Maxfield Parrish

October 26th, 2011 by Admin

One of the distinct pleasures of working in Special Collections is working with authors who publish books after using our collections. Today we received the latest book: Maxfield Parrish: Painter of Magical Make-Believe by Lois V. Harris. Her book contains 2 of the 4 Maxfield Parrish paintings we have in our Reading Room. The author states that, “Parrish’s paintings are fine examples of the advertising changes sweeping the world in the early 1900’s: using high-quality art to sell products.” These painting are part of the Ferry-Morse Seed Co. archives. Come see our famous paintings soon.
