For more than a century, members of the Wyeth family have created works of art that fascinate and captivate the imagination making the Wyeth tradition one of the most enduring and celebrated legacies in all of American art. This exhibition presents a selection of the work of five of the family's artists through more than fifty remarkable paintings and drawings. Patriarch N.C. Wyeth was one of the country's foremost illustrators at the turn of the twentieth century. Included in the exhibition are his classic illustrations for books by Robert Louis Stevenson and Washington Irving.  N.C.'s son Andrew is known for his haunting, highly detailed realist paintings.  Not as well known as her brother, Henriette Wyeth was an accomplished artist who painted striking landscapes, and still lifes.  Andrew Wyeth's son, Jamie, represents the third generation of the family. His paintings often feature the people, animals, and landscapes of Maine and Pennsylvania, and are imbued with a sense of magic and mystery. Works by Peter Hurd, a student of N.C. Wyeth and husband of Henriette Wyeth, are also included in the exhibition.
