Maxfield Parrish lived in Windsor, VT, not too far from where I live. His paintings are well known for their highly saturated, fantastically lit clouds and landscapes. On some days, I think he truly painted what he saw in real life, as seen above in photos I took recently at the end of the day.
Mr. Parrish lived from 1870-1966 and was part of Cornish Colony, artists who lived and created around Cornish, New Hampshire in the early 20th century. His work continues to be popular and the Cornish Colony Museum in Windsor houses some of his paintings, which seen in person are amazing, simply because books don’t do the work justice. I particularly like a floor to ceiling wall mural featuring courtly scenes common in a lot of his work. Well worth the visit if you are in the area.
