Three Generations of Wyeths Tour

The Wyeths are a three-generation family of famous artists. Newell Convers (N.C.) Wyeth, most well-known for his book illustrations, son Andrew, who painted the iconic Christina’s World, and grandson James, have all been influenced by Maine and its people since N.C. brought his family to summer here in 1920. Students can discover the common themes and shared artistic traditions as well as the differences in the distinct styles of each generation. Teacher resource packet with slides and posters is available.
