Fairy Tale Fridays - The Art of Maxfield Parrish

Enchanted Prince by Maxfield Parrish

As a struggling artist trying to make a living as he was working to make a name for himself, Maxfield Parrish turned to illustrating children's books. Fortunately, many of these included fairy tales. Parrish would later become known for a particular style of painting he developed famous for its luminosity and also for the detail in the works. Looking at his earlier work, it's obvious he had long been found of detail and the play of light in his work. Aren't they lovely?
