    This is a Maxfield Parrish series of three scenes taken from a mural. It is mounted (original) on a heavy piece of art board. I would appreciate any information/background that anyone has concerning this item. There are markings on the bottom of each of the panels. The markings are identical for all three. COPR. Curtis Publishing Co. and underneath that: COPR. Detroit Publishing Co. The signature of Maxfield Parrish with the date 1911 is also at the bottom of each section. It is 21.5 " high and 25.25 " wide. See photos for closeup. I obtained this about 40 years ago. It is in very nice condition but I cannot find good information about it or the murals it depicts. Thanks.

      Titles from left to right are: Love's Pilgrimage; Garden of Oppoertunity and A Call to Joy which are three of the 18 panels of Parrish's Florentine Fete. Painted between 1910 and 1916, the panels were first displayed in the “Girls Dining Room” at Curtis Publishing in Philadelphia, then-owners of Ladies Home Journal. Parrish put himself into the Fete, and a close look reveals that nearly every woman is a version of his longtime model and mistress, Susan Lewin. “She appears 166 times,”
