“It is a glory and a privilege to love what Death doesn’t touch.”*
Today is the birthday of Newell Convers Wyeth (October 22, 1882 – October 19, 1945), the great American illustrator and artist who was the patriarch of the Wyeth dynasty of artists.
Let’s enjoy some of his famous (and less famous) illustrations.
There are just so many great ones!
And here’s a place I’m adding to my bucket list: the Brandywine River Museum in Chadd’s Ford, PA. After all, it’s just a hop, skip and a jump from Maryland.
