N.C. Wyeth: New Perspectives Exhibition Catalogue
Throughout his career, N. C. Wyeth vigorously pursued parallel interests in painting landscapes, seascapes, portraits, still lifes and advertising images. The catalogue's essays look at topics such as Wyeth's contributions to the visual mythology of the American West, the darker images found in the Treasure Island illustrations, his Maine masterpiece Island Funeral and his commercial images that idealized the American past to meet the needs of a modern advertising business. Complete with a detailed chronology, this carefully researched study of Wyeth's life and work provides an insight into the remarkeable breadth of this complex yet often misunderstood artist. 216 pages.
