NC Wyeth at the Chadds Ford Gallery       
Newell Convers Wyeth (1882 – 1945), known as N.C. Wyeth, was a master painter and one of America's formost illustrators. He was the star pupil of artist Howard Pyle and durring the golden age of illustration.

His first published work appeared on the cover of The Saturday Evening Post in 1903. In 1911 he painted a series of illustrations for an edition of the book, Treasure Island, by Robert Louis Stevenson. He also illustrated editions of The Yearling, The White Company, Robinson Crusoe, The Last of the Mohicans, Kidnapped (1937), and Robin Hood. During his lifetime, Wyeth created over 3,000 paintings and illustrated 112 books, 25 of them for Scribner's, the work for which he is best known.

For fathering and inventing the Wyeth clan in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, his life is "larger than his accomplishments." N.C. Wyeth was married to Carolyn Bockius. Their children were Andrew Wyeth, Henriette Wyeth Hurd, Carolyn Wyeth, Ann Wyeth McCoy, and Nathaniel C. Wyeth. Andrew, Henriette, and Carolyn became artists as well. Ann became an artist and composer. Nathaniel became an engineer for DuPont and worked on the team that invented the plastic soda bottle. Henriette and Ann married two of N.C.'s proteges, Peter Hurd and John W. McCoy. N.C. Wyeth is the grandfather of artist Jamie Wyeth and musician Howard Wyeth.

Significant public collections of N.C. Wyeth's work are on display at the Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford, and in Maine, at the Portland Museum of Art and the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland.
