This exhibition showcases the work of N. C. Wyeth (1882–1945), the patriarch of one of America’s most prominent artistic families. Co-organized by the Brandywine River Museum of Art in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, and the Portland Museum of Art in Maine, this exhibition brings together approximately 50 large-scale paintings. Spanning several decades, these works evolve from the American impressionist style of the 1910s to the regionalist realism of the 1930s and ’40s associated with artists such as Thomas Hart Benton and Grant Wood.
N. C. Wyeth interpreted many classic novels of fantasy and adventure, like Treasure Island, but has long been overlooked in the greater narrative of art history. This landmark exhibition brings together approximately 50 of Wyeth’s adventure-packed, large-scale paintings as well as his private works for its final destination and only Midwest venue.Show more
