Nostalgia Illustrated: N. C. Wyeth, Advertising and American Cultural History

Join us at the Brandywine River Museum of Art as Professor Douglas B. Dowd discusses N. C. Wyeth’s commercial images and how the artist situated American consumers in a golden past to meet the needs of a nascent, modern advertising business.
