“. . . To reach the goal of one’s ambitions must be tragic. ” – N.C. Wyeth
In this bonus episode, we take a look at an American artistic dynasty: the Wyeths. Based in the Brandywine Valley, the Wyeths’ works grace the walls of museums around the world and the covers of popular literature such as “The Saturday Evening Post”. Simultaneously, they lived a complicated and dysfunctional life together. Join us as we look at the lives of N.C. Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth and the other members of one of the most celebrated American artistic families.
Previously, we looked at the Wyeths here on the blog. There is a post on N.C. Wyeth here and Andy Wyeth here. Pictures of their homes and studios accompany those posts if you’re curious to see what they look like now. N.C.’s studio was not touched except for preservation purposes and appears as it did the day he left the studio before his tragic accident, that post with pictures is here.
