Item Details
Description
Stephen Maxfield Parrish (1846 - 1938) American
Oil on Canvas
Measure 13"in H x 14"in W and 16 1/2"in H x 17 1/4"in W with frame

Known for: Etcher, landscape, marine, and figure painter
Biography: During the 1880s, Stephen Parrish was one of the leading etchers in America. Although his paintings were received with favor and were shown regularly in New York and at exhibitions throughout the country, he was more widely known for his etchings, especially those of New England coastal scenes. In 1867, he was in Paris, but as a coal merchant, and not as an artist. By 1869 in Philadelphia, he owned a stationery store, which he sold in 1877 and then committed himself to painting and etching. Around 1890, after the peak of the Etching Revival, he returned to painting landscapes on Cape Cod and Cape Ann, and also traveled to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. He stopped painting in the mid 1920s due to a stroke. He was the brother of Anne L. Parrish and father of illustrator Maxfield Parrish. Stephen not only instructed his son during his boyhood years, but the two men shared a seaside studio at Annisquam, Massachusetts, for two summers in 1892 and 1893. Stephen Parrish spent only a few weeks at Annisquam in 1893, however, as he was busy overseeing the construction of his new home at Cornish, New Hampshire. Historically, Cornish, New Hampshire has always been associated first and foremost with the artist who purportedly "discovered" it--the leading American sculptor of the late nineteenth century, Augustus Saint-Gaudens. In 1885, Saint-Gaudens was coaxed by Charles Cotesworth Beaman, Jr., a successful New York lawyer and patron who bought land in the relatively impoverished farm communities of Plainfield and Cornish in the 1880s--to rent a house on his property. The sculptor and his family returned every summer thereafter, finally purchasing the house in 1891. Saint-Gaudens' and Beman's partnership, with their respective celebrity and generosity, nurtured Cornish as a colony for artists; George de Forest Brush and Thomas Wilmer Dewing were two of the first to establish summer residences there. Stephen Parrish was introduced to the colony, in 1891, through his friendship with fellow etcher and later architect and garden designer Charles A. Platt.
