MAXFIELD PARRISH
The artist signs the flyleaf of a 1934 book about an escape from the Soviet gulag
Book signed: "Maxfield Parrish/from/Juliet Ruglee", 5¼x7¾, 320 pages. Escape from the Soviets, by Tatiana Tchernavin. New York: E. P. Dutton & Co., 1934. Hardcover. (Even though this looks like an inscription, the signature is that of Parrish. He is apparently noting ownership of the book, and from whom he received it.) MAXFIELD PARRISH (1870-1966), began as an illustrator, his first commission being L. Frank Baum's Mother Goose in Prose (1897). His illustrations appeared in many popular magazines, including Life and Collier's. His work enlivened many product advertisements. In the 1920s, Parrish turned away from commercial art to focus on his paintings, one distinctive motif being nude figures in fantastic landscapes. From the 1930s he focused on landscape art. Parrish was a representational artist at a time when his style of work was out of favor with critics (though much admired by the public). He was also famed for bold colors, including what came to be called "Parrish blue." Vladimir Tchernavin was a Russian ichthyologist imprisoned (under comparatively lenient conditions, since his work was still needed) during the Soviet purges of the early 1930s. He escaped from Russia with his wife and son. Tchernavin and his wife Tatiana each wrote a book about their ordeal. Book binding toned. Edges lightly toned. Fine condition.
