Three generations of Wyeth's at the Portland Art Museum. Newell Converse is hands down my favorite of the work represented in this exhibit. He apprenticed with Howard Pyle. His illustrations join many artists of that era - Maxfield Parrish who influenced Fred Machetanz, Minerva Teichert who studied with Robert Henri - in the pursuit of narrating history and their social/cultural experience.
These fellows are pretty scary stuffed and mounted. Imagine how frightening they’d be riding down on someone!
So thankful for membership in a museum where artists are encouraged to participate with the exhibits by sketching. A bit difficult trying to apply color in the (seeming) near dark.
