Summary:
REEL 3483: Two letters, May 15, 1961 and August 26, 1961, from Maxfield Parrish to Munson in New Haven, Conn. in which Parrish asserts that he has only a small number of paintings for an exhibit due to the success of an exhibition at Scott and Fowles in 1925 "which just about cleaned me out" and a "sell out" at the Boston sale of illustrations for Edith Wharton's Italian Gardens. Parrish discourages Munson from planning an exhibition of his work.
