Three Generations of Wyeth ArtRegister for Courses
November 5 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Three generations of Wyeth artists have lived and painted in the Brandywine Valley, starting with N. C. Wyeth, known for his dynamic illustrations for classics such as Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island, and continuing with his daughters, Henriette and Carolyn Wyeth, and son, Andrew Wyeth. The third generation of this creative family includes N. C. Wyeth’s grandson, Jamie Wyeth. Although each family member has a distinct style, these artists share a commitment to painting subjects they know well. This lecture will give an overview of the art and inspirations of this talented family.
