The Brandywine River Museum Offers New Exhibit

N.C. Wyeth, George Washington at Yorktown.

Now on display at The Brandywine River Museum is N.C. Wyeth’s American in the Making. The breathtaking exhibit displays images of inspirational and patriotic events in American history, from Coronado’s 16th-century expedition through the Southwest to Abraham Lincoln’s second inaugural address in 1865. Props from the artist’s Chadds Ford studio, such as a life mask of Abraham Lincoln, a coonskin cap and a Kentucky rifle, will provide fascinating insight into how Wyeth created these paintings. The America in the Making paintings are on loan from the collection of the Brunnier Art Museum of Iowa State University in Ames. An illustrated catalogue from the Brunnier Art Museum will be available. For more information on the event visit www.brandywinemuseum.org.
