    I am a great admirer of Maxfield Parrish, and from the "Girls on Rocks" series, Ecstasy is my absolute favorite.

    Lithograph art print is titled, " Ecstasy" by Maxfield Parrish and is an original calendar print for EDISON MAZDA LAMPS from 1930. Advertisement is from H.P SHAPLEY & SON, Electrical - Appliances; Bosch Radio - Auto Supplies. The back side of the calendar also has advertisements, as the last pic will show.

      Nice Parrish calendar. How did you come to own it?
    4. glassiegirl glassiegirl, 5 years ago
      Hi, Edisonfan. It's interesting you ask. There is two local auction auctions I try to attend weekly. I first came across the calendar when I was previewing an auction online, and decided to pass on it. The snowy weather was bad that weekend, and it was too much of a drive. Two weeks later, I found the same print at the other auction mixed in with other calendar prints being sold by the piece. I was pleased to see it again and could verify by looking at the back of the calendar print it was original. Bidders were going after the other calendars which were Western themed. I was really shocked when it came time to bid, there was not much interest as there was with the other calendars. I must say this was a memorable and fun experience at the auction for me. I've been lucky to have found other MP prints locally and at reasonable prices.

      If I could explain how I became a fan of Maxfield Parrish's art work, about six or seven years ago at auction, I purchased a collection of MP prints from a collector who must have spent a life time collecting. If I'm not mistaken the auction was at Skinner's. I did not know who Maxfield Parrish was at the time. I bought the collection because I loved all of the different depictions of the art work and knew someone had really cherished this artist. There must have been close to 100 MP prints all dating from early to late. Many were framed, but most of them were kept in a plastic sleeve. I let my sister take her pick of what she wanted as a gift for her new home. She fell in love with illustration prints from the "Knave of Hearts" book. Me, I only kept two prints, Ecstasy and His Christmas Dinner. The rest of the collection I parted with so other collectors can enjoy and I could move on to purchase something else to learn from which by that time I was getting into Bohemian glass.

      Thanks, for asking Edisonfan. I hope my response finds you well, and it's nice to meet another person who enjoys MP art work.

      Such beautiful artwork, such a fantasy painting. Even the graphics are stellar ! The reference on back would interest a lot of lamp collectors.
    7. glassiegirl glassiegirl, 5 years ago
      Thank you so much, Phil. I apologize for not getting back sooner. I don't receive emails when comments are received if I had to explain. I'm glad you like the print as much as I do, and you're right the reference could be of help to someone lucky enough to have a match. ;)
