N.C. Wyeth: Artist and Illustrator
N. C. Wyeth came to the Brandywine Valley in October of 1902, to study with the famous illustrator Howard Pyle. He quickly became one of Pyle’s most promising students. In 1911, Charles Scribner’s Sons commissioned Wyeth to illustrate Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel Treasure Island, which launched his career as one of the most famous illustrators of the first half of the 20th century. During Wyeth’s lifetime he completed more than a thousand book and magazine illustrations, including images for such classics as The Black Arrow, Kidnapped, Robin Hood, and The Boy’s King Arthur. The artist often found inspiration for both his commissioned and non-commissioned work in the landscape surrounding his home and studio in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. This presentation will focus on Wyeth’s rich artistic career and the impact of his work on the next two generations of Wyeth artists. Mary Cronin is the Dean of Education and Public Programs at the Brandywine River Museum of Art, where she has been fortunate to work among beautiful art and scenic surroundings for over 20 years. She has a B. A. in Art History from Swarthmore College, and an Master of Arts in Teaching in Museum Education from The George Washington University. This program was made possible by a Carlson Cultural Trust Grant.
