THROUGH THE DOORS
An Extraordinary of the Sports Legends of
Family of Artists Delaware County Museum
une 22 through
September 15, 2019 ...
The Brandywine River
Museum of Art presents N.
C. Wyeth: New Perspectives,
the first exhibition in
almost 50 years to examine
in depth the entirety of
oeuvre. A formidable yet
often overlooked figure in
the history of American
art, N. C. Wyeth was the
foremost illustrator of his
generation, and the patriarch
of an extraordinary family
of artists. By repositioning
Wyeth as a distinguished painter who worked across the
perceived divisions of visual culture in painting, illustration,
murals and advertising, the exhibition offers new insights on
Wyeth's place within the broad spectrum of early 20th-century
Co-organized by the Brandywine River Museum of Art and
the Portland Museum of Art (PMA), this landmark exhibition
includes approximately 70 paintings and drawings selected
from major museums and private collections.

book tells the story of local criminals, a master cat burglar,
gamblers and murderers and how law enforcement secured the
paintings and brought the criminals to justice.

reporter. He has authored 20 books on history, sports, business
