The first book to celebrate the dramatic Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, setting and renowned art collection of the Brandywine River Museum of Art and its historic homes, studios, and sites relating to three generations of the Wyeth family. The Brandywine River Museum of Art is home to one of the countryÕs renowned collections of American art. This stunning book reveals the beauty of the museumÕs remarkable holdings, housed in a renovated nineteenth-century mill building with a steel- and-glass addition overlooking the Brandywine River, and of its three historic propertiesÑthe N. C. Wyeth home and studio, the Andrew Wyeth studio, and the Kuerner Farm, which inspired over 1,000 works by Andrew WyethÑall National Historic Landmarks. This volume features fifty of the museumÕs most beloved paintings, by artists such as John Kensett, Martin Johnson Heade, William Trost Richards, Horace Pippin, and Andrew Wyeth, along with immersive photographs of the 300-acre landscape surrounding the museum and historic structures. The introduction by curator Christine Podmaniczky includes a brief history of this unique institution, its art collection, and the intimate places where the Wyeth family lived and painted.
