The Wyeths: Three Generations
Works from the Bank of America Collection
May 13-August 20, 2023
Seldom is extraordinary artistic talent found in three successive generations of one family. We may wonder if N. C. Wyeth, the patriarch, considered the possibility of such succession when he discovered—among his five very talented children—artists bound for fame. Considering his fascinating life and what can be known of his character, it seems that he might have hoped for such a lineage and that nothing would have delighted him more.
Drawing from the Bank of America Collection, The Wyeths: Three Generations provides a revealing survey of works by N.C. Wyeth, one of America’s finest illustrators; his son Andrew, an important realist painter; Andrew’s son Jamie, a popular portraitist; and members of the extended family. Visitors will explore 74 paintings and drawings by artists from three generations of the Wyeth family, all showcasing a commitment to realism, technical brilliance, and narrative sensibility.
