Maxfield Parrish (July 25, 1870 – March 30, 1966) was an American painter and illustrator active in the first half of the 20th century. He is known for his distinctive saturated hues and idealized neo-classical imagery. His career spanned fifty years and was wildly successful. What a great piece of the past, with the women at the pool and the reflections seen. Masterwork made some wonderful brass belt buckles.

This specific painting was titled "Garden of Allah" 1918
Maxfield Parrish captures a light mood in his paintings that feels supernatural and very real and tangible at the same time. It is as if he’s able to paint a plane of existence we can all somehow recollect but very rarely perceive. This world of light can revive a forgotten time and make you drunk with delight.
Parrish was a pioneer of printing art for mass distribution and had tremendous commercial success with it. Daybreak, the first picture of the selection below for example, is still the most sold print in history. He was the George Lucas of his time as one may say.
