N. C. Wyeth: New Perspectives


A fresh and surprising overview of N. C. Wyeth’s career that considers the full range of the multifaceted artist’s oeuvre

N. C. Wyeth (1882–1945) was widely renowned for his iconic images of characters such as King Arthur, Robin Hood, and Robinson Crusoe that were reproduced as illustrations for books and magazines. The patriarch of the Wyeth family, father of Andrew Wyeth and grandfather of Jamie, he was also an artist with a broad purview whose work includes impressionist views of the Pennsylvania countryside and 1930s modernist interpretations of Maine coastal scenes.
