Parrish loved painting landscapes and did such work throughout his career. In fact, many of his pictures feature a landscape, even if it’s only glimpsed through a window or an arch. Around 1933 Parrish began to paint landscapes exclusively. He even revisited some of his earlier works, painting out the featured figure in order to “strengthen the composition.” He also complained that he was tired of painting “girls on rocks.”
