N. C. Wyeth Exhibition Opens this Weekend
Join us for the opening of N. C. Wyeth: New Perspectives at the Brandywine River Museum of Art on June 22—the first exhibition in almost 50 years to examine in depth the entirety of Wyeth’s multifaceted oeuvre. Co-organized by the Brandywine River Museum of Art and the Portland Museum of Art (PMA), this landmark exhibition will include approximately 70 paintings and drawings selected from major museums and private collections.
A formidable yet often overlooked figure in the history of American art, N. C. Wyeth was the foremost illustrator of his generation, and the patriarch of an extraordinary family of artists. By repositioning Wyeth as a distinguished painter who worked across the perceived divisions of visual culture in painting, illustration, murals and advertising, the exhibition offers new insights on Wyeth’s place within the broad spectrum of early 20th-century visual arts. We look forward to sharing this once-in-a-generation exhibition with you!
