Mythology Monday - The Art of Maxfield Parrish

"Circes' Palace" by Maxfield Parrish
Because you can never get too much of a good thing, I thought you might like to see more of Maxfield Parrish's illustrations, these from the tales of mythology. Also, I'm working my way, gently, back into getting Mythology Monday and Fairy Tales Friday back into my regular schedule.

Again you can see the way Parrish plays with light in these. I'm also impressed with the depth of his works.


  1. these are lovely! I look forward to your features because I learned a lot from them especially because I just don't read much mythology or fairy tales!!

  2. I am loving his work. I've spent a bit this weekend looking into them. So impressed. Thanks for introducing me!

  3. I especially love the first one. Mythology has always fascinated me and it seems you can't learn about it without the art. I look forward to more!

  4. I am fascinated with mythology but never have the time to spend getting more into it. These illustrations are amazing. I especially like the last two.
