N.  C.  Wyeth (1882–1945) Untitled (Marines landing on the beach), 1944

The Wyeths: Three Generations, Works from the Bank of America Collection

Mint Museum Randolph
2730 Randolph Road
Charlotte, North Carolina

For more than a century, the members of the Wyeth family have been renowned for creating works of art that fascinate and captivate the imaginations of their viewers, making the Wyeth tradition one of the most enduring and celebrated legacies in all of American art. The Wyeths: Three Generations, Works from the Bank of America Collection is a testament to the profound artistic impact made by the Wyeth family, providing a window onto the careers of five of the family’s artists through more than fifty remarkable paintings and drawings.

Patriarch N.C. Wyeth (1882-1945) was one of the country’s foremost illustrators at the turn of the twentieth century. His ability to beautifully traverse fantasy and realism made him one of the most versatile American artists of his time. N.C.’s son Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009) became known for his detailed realism and haunting scenes of American life inspired by the history and beauty of the American northeast. Although not as well-known as her brother, Henriette Wyeth (1907-1997) painted striking portraits, landscapes, and still lifes. She is also represented in the exhibition, as is her husband Peter Hurd (1904-1984), who chronicled the landscape of the American west. Lastly, Andrew’s son Jamie (b. 1946) represents the family’s third generation of artists. Jamie, too, utilizes a realistic style, but adds his own twist of magic and mystery to his subjects.
