Harper's Monthly Magazine Cover, September 1900

Notes on Verso: "Nelson: Art Dept. Harper's Magazine: Pay Maxfield Parrish $50 for design. Also use Christmas Magazine Cover." "Storage Information: Price $950."

Parrish sold the design to Harper's. He kept the painting. Harper's would only change the month and use different colors to alternate for two or three different covers. This is the only original that exists.
