the-hunterThe exhibition, based on the holdings of the Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, is composed of 30 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.

This exhibition is made possible through the generous support of:

Bass Foundation, Richard Gilder and Lois Chiles, Anna Mae and George Twigg III and an anonymous gift

About Denis

A graduate of the University of Georgia’s Lamar Dodd School of Art; I have been drawing and painting ever since I can remember. I have always been inspired by the art of Romantic painters such as Eugene Delacroix, John Constable and W.M. Turner. I consider myself a modern Romantic seeking to capture the emotion or feeling of a subject above all else. Charles Baudelaire described Romanticism as "...situated neither in choice of subject nor exact truth, but in the way of feeling".
