About the Author:

Alma Gilbert-Smith is considered this country’s premiere authority and consultant for major auction houses and private buyers on the works of American artist Maxfield Parrish (1870-1966) as well as for other American artists of the nineteenth and twentieth century. These were the artists which populated the famous Cornish Art Colony in the Connecticut River Valley towns of Cornish and Plainfield, New Hampshire. She is the author of the definitive book on the life, career and works of Maxfield Parrish, titled: “Maxfield Parrish: The Masterworks”. Additionally, she has written fourteen other books on the life and works of the artist, as well as on the Cornish (NH) art colony and the historic homes of that area. A commemorative room honoring her legacy was dedicated by the State of New Hampshire at the Concord State Library in August 2012. Mrs. Gilbert-Smith founded and maintained for many years a museum displaying the works of Maxfield Parrish as well as the works of other prominent artists of the prestigious Cornish (NH) Art Colony. She has taught summer sessions at Dartmouth College’s Ilead program and at Colby-Sawyer College on both the life and works of Parrish and other Cornish Colony artists. She and her husband Peter Smith currently live in Southern California.
