This is an original Maxfield Parrish print, Ecstasycopyright 1929 in a period frame from a calendar advertising the Edisoncompanies Mazda line of bulbs. This is a classic Parrish image of a youngbeauty in nature, with the sun creating ethereal highlights on her and thescenic backdrop. Ecstasy is of special note because the model was theyoungest daughter of Parrish, Jean who posed for it shortly before she left forSmith College. This series of prints, though mass produced, are somewhat rarein that the rights for the prints were not reissued by Parrish estate forreprint outside of the original issues in relation to the Edison advertisingcampaign from 1918 until 1934. Note that the 9 has a short bottom loop and that astray blue ink pixel on the original print gives the appearance of a zero tothe 9, but that would be too early for this print.
I have included a couple ofangles trying to get the light so that colors and details can both beillustrated without removing the glass. I can supply more photos or attempt toanswer questions if desired. This frame is aparticularly nice Deco Nouveau?
Design with a blue and gold motif thataccents the print quite nicely. The print was cropped a bit for framing andthis was from the smaller version of the calendar.
