Twilight

Twilight by Maxfield Parrish, 1935

Parrish’s paintings are large, typically about 1/2 to 2/3 scale, and up close you can see that the final work is almost a collage of earlier works.  Many features have been carefully (and literally) cut-and-pasted from other canvases.

If you ever get the opportunity to see his art in person, be sure to take advantage.  There are a lot of things going on you can’t see from a picture on the internet.
