Maxfield Parrish's unmistakable paintings and illustrations captured the nation's imagination with their technical excellence and romantic quality and remain unrivaled to this day. Here, forty of Parrish's finest works are paired with poetic masterpieces: Sleeping Beauty and William Shakespeare's "Oh Mistress Mine, " The Canyon and Lord Byron's "She Walks in Beauty, " Dream Castles in the Sky and "The Splendor Falls" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. A brief biography of Parrish and a preface describing the relationships between the paintings and poems round out this immensely pleasurable offering.
