- Full Description
N. C. Wyeth (188-1945) was widely renowned for his iconic paintings 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, his later work includes impressionist views of the Pennsylvania countryside and 1930s modernist interpretations of Maine coastal scenes. This newly collects work from his entire career, from early magazine ads, to adventure novels, to idyllic scenes of life in New England.
The book’s essays look at topics such as Wyeth’s contributions to the visual mythology of the American West, the darker nuances found in his Treasure Island illustrations, and correlations between his illustrations and cinema. Also explored is the way in which Wyeth’s own Chadds Ford properties reflect his conception of home and the role of the artist in American society. Complete with a detailed chronology, this carefully researched study of Wyeth’s life and work provides a long overdue assessment of the remarkable breadth of this complex yet often misunderstood artist.
Includes many rare photos of the artist at work and with his family. A major new, updated look at this amazing creator.
