Maxfield Parrish (1870-1966) was an artist and illustrator. Born in Philadelphia to a Quaker family, Parrish studied at the Haverford School, Haverford College, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry (now Drexel University). His most notable artistic achievements were his techniques for application of luminous and deep hues and three dimensional effects in his painting. In the 1910s and 1920s Parrish produced advertising art and illustrations for periodicals, as well as paintings. Parrish switched from the focus on androgynous figures of his earlier work to concentrate on landscapes in the 1930s and for the remainder of his career, continuing to paint until the age of 91.
