  Stephen Parrish   (1846-1938)

 
  A WINTER'S DAY, WINDSOR, N.S., 1887. Schneider 125, ii/ii. Signed and numbered in the plate. This plate was commissioned by Frederick A. Stokes, with Parrish being free to choose his own subject. By 1887 Parrish was so popular that publishers would buy anything he offered. Parrish worked from the drawings made on earlier trips to Canada, altering his summer views into a snowy winter scene. This is an excellent impression, done before the plate degraded. In very good condition.
