Mr. Parker's works are held in many museums and collections including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Morgan Library. His drawings have graced the pages of over ninety books. Mr. Parker's subjects are many and varied; images from his world travels, portraits, animals, military themes, and jazz. In all of them there is a mastery of line and color and a sense of youthful energy. A concurrent exhibition of his illustrated books will be shown at the Canton Public Library from May through June.
