N.C. Wyeth: Every Picture Tells a Story

April 27, 2013 – December 29, 2013

Exhibition Dates

April 27, 2013 – December 29, 2013

Exhibitions are free with admission.


The exhibition, based on the holdings of the Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, is composed of thirty paintings by N. C. Wyeth that span four decades of his work, from early western pictures through Robert Louis Stevenson classics to later illustrations in experimental styles.  The paintings were reproduced as illustrations for book and magazine stories and are linked by the concept of narrative that lay behind their creation. The exhibition also includes a selection of books and magazines to enable visitors to see original publications, the size of the illustrations, and the quality of the reproduction processes. This exhibition is organized by Christine Podmaniczky, Associate Curator for the N.C. Wyeth collection at the Brandywine River Museum and author of the N.C. Wyeth catalogue raisonné.
