    A once student of Howard Pyle School of Art and now just another illustrator almost lost in the void...

    Keep them alive!

    My favorite illustration is the Pirate ship for Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. They're all hanging on the side about to board a ship, I have it in my mess somewhere, I'll scan and post if I find it.

    To be nobody-but-yourself -- in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else -- means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.

    Gracious thanks for those Joshua,

    The Pyle school is one of the best things that has ever happend to this country, and Wyeth probably played the biggest role...

    I'm floored at those cloud formations... Bugger....

    I've got some B&Ws of Pyle's I could post on a new thread but it may take a week er two.... ??

    Thanks again,

    um, n.c. wyeth and the wyeths after him ARE pretty famous, maybe not in your neck of the woods but around these parts of town they're very well known and hardly "lost in the void"

    The only one of these guys that anyone really know of is Norman Rockwell. Even a lot of students and artists today don't know of them.

    Or may be it just seems that way because they only make art books for reallll artists :o ... The art section in Barnes and Knoble is quite an irritating one.

    Hahahaha....

    I used to work at B&N, 8 yrs actually... Art section?? What art section... I remember almost getting fired trying to pump up the art section with expensive biographies, and Illustrators annuals like AmerShowcase and Blackbook.. They just see it as loss... I'm glad their distributors finally picked up on Spectrum, and the Underwood titles though...
    Blast... I can't even walk into modern book stores anymore without getting the willies... Brrrrrr...

    All of the brandywine guys were awesome, but dean cornwell was by far the best in my opinion. And i think alot of students and artists don't know of them because whoever is teaching them doesn't have a traditional background, cause if they did they're names would eventually arise i think. But there a lots of other really good artists that most other artists don't know about. Saul Tepper, Mead Schaeffer, Peder Kroyer anyone?

    oh these are such a sight for sore eyes.
    after looking at all my muddied paintings, and the muted pictures others paint at school and then seeing these, i feel so refreshed

    As a mans power and knowledge grows so the paths he may choose lessen more and more until he can choose only and whole what he must do.

    I hadn't seen that last Rip Van Winkle, before, very nice.

    If you live in the PA, MD, DE, VA area, the Brandywine Museum has dozens of NC Wyeth and Andrew Wyeth paintings on permanent display.

    In real life, NC's paintings are large, 3 feet by 4 feet with chunky paint application. It was an awesome trip 4-5 years ago and I need to go again.

    I'll see if I can dig up some more info on the museum's location and hours.

    I grew up reading books my grandmother sent me, some of them illustrated by N.C. Wyeth.

    Many years later, I fell in love with Andrew Wyeth's work and, happily, saw an exhibition in San Francisco.

    Even later, I made the connection. Father and son.

    And even later, I learned of Jamie Wyeth, N.C. Wyeth's grandson.

    I think there's a grandaughter, or daughter, who also paints.

    What a family!

    Thank you Wyeths, one and all, for so much pleasure you've given us.

    Please do not PM me with Painter questions. Instead, post them here where everyone can benefit from them. Thanks!

    P.S.

    Justin Sweet's work reminds me of N.C. Wyeths.

    wow

    thanks for posting these. 2 weeks ago i bought a book at BORDERS of his with something like 100 full page color pictures for 6 bucks. it's a big book too. but there are alot that weren't in the book. my favorite of his though, is the one called "Giant" i think? with the kids on the beach looking at the giant in the sky....

    thanks

    I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.
