Father of Andrew Wyeth, pupil of Howard Pyle, and one of the preeminent illustrators of the twentieth century, Newell Convers Wyeth (1882–1945) learned early to use dramatic effects to great advantage in his works. At the start of his career, these robust, romantic illustrations earned their creator many commissions from such popular publications of the period as Harper's Monthly, Ladies' Home Journal, McClure's,
and The Saturday Evening Post.
This gallery of art cards presents 24 of Wyeth's most dynamic illustrations for magazines and literary classics as well as selections from his personal paintings, landscapes, and other works from the exclusive collection of the Brandywine River Museum of Art, located in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. Highlights include illustrations from Kidnapped, Treasure Island,
and The Last of the Mohicans
as well as portraits of George Washington and William Penn and rural scenes from the Chadds Ford area. An Introduction and Notes by a Brandywine River Museum curator complement the images.
