The Art of Newell Convers (N C) Wyeth



Newell Convers (N C) Wyeth (1882-1945) is an American artist associated with the Golden Age of Illustration.


The Newell Convers Wyeth Collection at Spirit of the Ages includes art images from some

of Wyeth's seminal work. As a valuable reference resource, options are also provided for

purchasing a range of gifts, including reproduction prints, posters and greeting cards.


Throughout his artistic career - that included both painting and illustrating - Wyeth created more than 3,000 paintings and contributed illustrations to over 100 books.


Wyeth showed advanced artistic skills from an early age and his artistic pursuits were encouraged by his mother and after some intermediate training at the Massachusetts Normal Arts School and the Eric Pape School of Art, he became a stellar student in Howard Pyle's School of Art.


During the early years of his work as an illustrator, Wyeth restricted himself to themes of classic Americana - particularly those related to Western subjects. Beginning in 1911, however, Wyeth shifted his focus to that of classic literature.
