Fantasy helps shape the Golden Age of illustration. In the mid 1920s, Maxfield Parrish was a household name. He was considered the most popular American artist before Norman Rockwell and was credited with helping to develop the future of visual arts in the United States. The first color reproduction posters displayed the glowing hues and architectural detail of his work. Magazines, advertisements, books for kids and adults, calendars, greeting cards, and menus all used his illustrations. This biography for children contains photographs of the artist and is illustrated with the colorful dream lands he was known for creating.
