Maxfield Parish Daybreak 1922 - Iconic Print of the 20th Century

I purchased this print a few years ago at auction... it caught my eye instantly and with good's a vintage Maxfield Parish print of his iconic 'Daybreak' painted in 1922.

Daybreak is considered as one of the most popular prints of the 20th century 'based on number of prints made: one for every four American homes' (wikipedia).

An American painter and illustrator Maxfield Parish, born 1870, was 'known for his distinctive saturated hues and idealized neo-classical imagery.' (wikipedia)
