An extraordinarily gifted artist, Maxfield Parrish helped shape the Golden Age of illustration with a career lasting more than half a century. Parrish received a university education and toured the galleries of Europe, but he said his father was his best teacher. Stephen Parrish painted with his son often and trained him to pay close attention to nature. Parrish grew up painting at an easel and visiting Europe to study the Old Masters. His imaginative style and lively colors decorated books, advertisements, candy boxes, calendars, and cards. By 1925, prints of his work hung in millions of homes all across America. This biography for children contains photographs of the artist and is illustrated with the colorful dreamlands he was known for creating. Lois V. Harris's fiction, nonfiction, and photography have appeared in children's magazines and in the L.A. Times. She is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, the Authors Guild, the University of Washington Alumni Association, and the Seattle Art Museum. The author of Mary Cassatt: Impressionist Painter and Charlie Russell: Tale-Telling Cowboy Artist, Harris lives in Anacortes, Washington.
