N C Wyeth

Newell Convers (“N.C.”) Wyeth was one of the foremost twentieth-century American draughtsmen and painters, who “skillfully blended romance and realism into his pictures”—whether they be literary heroes, still lifes, or landscapes of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, and Port Clyde, Maine. An expert illustrator and colorist, Wyeth “explored various styles and mastered techniques which range from the broadly brushed to the near photographic.” With meticulously detailed and colorful brushstrokes, his figures and landscape settings in each painting generate a “veritable tapestry of vibrant patterning.”
