N. C. Wyeth drew a firm line between his celebrated and hugely popular illustrations and the paintings that he made when the press of commissions eased. Throughout his career he painted still lifes and, more often, landscapes, producing compositions less dramatic and more personal than those familiar illustrations of such characters as Long John Silver and Robin Hood. Both of the paintings featured in this folio are scenes from Port Clyde, Maine, where Wyeth had a summer home—which he named “Eight Bells.”
Contains five each of the following images:
