This gorgeous lithograph print is by the American illustrator, Maxfield Parrish, and is titled “The Young King of the Black Isles”, based after the short story of the same name. It was created in 1906 and served as the frontispiece to Collier’s Arabian Nights VIII that was published in 1907. It depicts a sultan brought to tears after hearing the sad story of a young king. Parrish illustrated the Arabian Nights early on in his career and it garnered him much respectability in the art and literary worlds. This book was one of the first commissioned works in which prints of Parrish’s illustrations became available for purchase. The earliest lithograph of “The Young King of the Black Isles” for public purchase dates to 1910. These lithograph prints made his art much more accessible to a wider audience. His unique method of glazing made his pieces more luminous and added to the fantastical nature of his illustrations.
This piece measures 9" by 11". The frame is in pretty bad condition.
