N.C. Wyeth Catalogue Raisonne

The Brandywine River Museum of Art in Chadds Ford, PA owns the largest collection of N.C. (Newell Convers) Wyeth's artwork and provides digital access to these works via the Catalogue Raisonne. N. C. Wyeth, A Catalogue Raisonne of Paintings was originally published in print as a two-volume set in 2008 and documented 1,922 paintings that Wyeth created between 1902 and 1945, while the online edition has grown to include over 2,800 works. Most entries in the catalogue consist of an image of the work of art, physical description, provenance, publication and exhibition records, and historical notes. In some cases, related images or photographs are also present. For example, the catalogue entry for Wyeth's painting of Abraham Lincoln from 1938/39 lets us know that the painting was created as a calendar illustration in December 1940 for "America in the Making," published by John Morrell & Company in Ottumwa, IA. The entry also includes a handwritten note written by Wyeth as he prepared his 1939 income taxes, listing expenses for the commission. In addition to documenting N.C. Wyeth, there's also a family tree tracing the many other painters in the Wyeth family, such as N.C. Wyeth's son Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009), daughter Carolyn Wyeth (1909-1994), and grandson Jamie Wyeth (b. 1946).
