Also included are his famous magazine covers-from Life, Collier’s, Harper’s Weekly, etc., as well as all the landscapes that he painted for Brown and Bigelow, who reproduced them as calendars every year from 1936 to 1963.One of the highlights of the book is the chapter on Parrish’s technique, examining in depth his materials, favorite methods, and unique way of painting.
