Arts Everyday Living: Through the Eyes of N.C. Wyeth-Self Portraits as Revelation, 27 to 58 years

N.C. Wyeth, Self Portrait with Palette, 1909-1912, oil on canvas, Brandywine River Museum of Art, Chadds Ford, PA

 

N. C. Wyeth (1882-1945)  was the patriarch of what is considered America’s most famous artistic family, including his son Andrew (1917-2009) and grandson Jamie (1946-). His two self-portraits are both powerful, contrasting the intense, serious man in his late twenties with the more approachable and even smiling painter some three decades later.
