(1870 - 1966)

One of America's most popular artists, Parrish was a pioneer in commercial and graphic art. A master illustrator, he was innovative in incorporating art in advertising. He is known for his signature vibrant blues, his choice of fantastical subjects, and capturing the spontaneity of action. He studied at the Pa. Academy of the Fine Arts and under Howard Pyle at Drexel. His Dream Garden mosaic here was created with Tiffany Studios in 1915.
