Visions of Adventure: N. C. Wyeth & Brandywine Artists
This collection contains examples of the work of Howard Pyle, N.C. Wyeth, and four other exceptional painters from the Brandywine school of illustration, which opened in 1900. The 45-plus color illustrations, selected from magazines and books published throughout the 20th century, are accompanied by commentary discussing each work and illustrator. Five sections present chivalry, pirates, the American Indian, the frontier, and the art of illustration a personal journey. Edited by art collector Dell in association with Walt Reed, who has chronicled the history of American illustration in several books and articles.
