Maxfield Parrish Reissued
An unusually large reproduction print of Maxfield Parrish's Hilltop is currently on the market. What makes the print significant is its size, 36" high x 22" wide. It is the only Parrish illustration ever printed the same size as the original painting.
The painting was finished in 1926 with paper prints available for public sale in 1926-1927. Original prints were published by House of Art in three sizes: 10" x 6", 20" x 12" and 30" x 18". Previous modern reproductions have appeared as 18" x 12½" and 25" x 18¼".
This new print has been marketed as a "limited" edition "...and embossed with the chop [seal] of the Maxfield Parrish Family Trust." It is printed on rag paper.
We though this new print worth mentioning because the extraordinary size might be confusing.
