Parrish’s ability as a colorist is instantly obvious within the current work, by which every component of the scene is rendered with the calculated precision and intense palette which have develop into integral to his visible vocabulary. His creative course of was labor intensive; he rigorously layered coloured glazes over a white floor, to provide the impression of sunshine shining via the hues. The preliminary influence is highly effective and fast; although nearer examination reveals an nearly delicate high quality.
For Parrish, nature was infinitely advanced, mirrored in his meticulous portray model, and he strove to transcribe its transient magnificence in his work: “these qualities which delight us in nature–the sense of freedom, pure air and lightweight, the magic of distance, and the saturated great thing about colour, should be convincingly said and take the beholder to the very spot” (Coy Ludwig, Maxfield Parrish, New York, 1973, p. 175) (Sotheby’s)
