Mondays with Max: More talent at 26 Main

The Snapdragon Inn

Last week, we enjoyed a couple of quotes from Max Perkins, former resident of 26 Main. Max wasn't the only creative soul in his household. His wife, Louise Saunders was also a dramatic, lively and creative personality.

Cornish, NH along with Windsor, VT was the heart of the Cornish Colony of artists that included Auguste St. Gaudens and Maxfield Parrish. Maxfield Parrish was an acclaimed illustrator, known for his imaginative and romantic settings. Louise Saunders worked with Maxfield Parrish to create the fable Knave of Hearts, published in 1925. It includes 22 illustrations by Parrish, which took him 3 years to complete, and by some descriptions, these illustrations are considered to be some of his finest work.


Check out this link to catch just a glimpse of the fantasy, whimsy and beauty of this collaboration between two artists who spent a considerable amount of time in Windsor. You can also see some of the prints here.

Also, if you love children's illustrations and you are in the area, visit the Cornish Colony Art Museum here in Windsor for their latest exhibition. We visited the museum this summer, and my three kids ages 11, 8, and 5 all found something they liked.
