A Brush with America: Paintings by the Wyeth Family
Paintings by three generations of America’s best known art family, the Wyeths, will be on display. N.C. Wyeth (1882 – 1945) began a three-generation artistic dynasty including his son, Andrew, and grandson, Jamie, as well as other family members. N.C. is best known for his illustrations of Treasure Island published in 1911. Exhibit highlights will include a rarely-seen series of sixteen works Wyeth completed to illustrate the book Poems of American Patriotism.
