Max P.

So. Maxfield Parrish, born 192 years ago today, is one of my all time favorite painters.  He painted this, one of my all time favorite paintings. 
Got a print of it hanging in my bedroom. If I was given to idolatry, ol' Max P. would be an idol of mine, for being such a genius generator of pure, blue Beauty.


  1. Now this is interesting, albeit troubling. I'd posted a picture of Maxfield Parrish's Daybreak here and now another image has appeared. Do I understand why? No. Another of life's mysteries, albeit a small one.

  2. And 'twas 142 yrs ago that day that Max P. was born. 25 July 1870. sheesh.
