Newell Convers Wyeth Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, Illustrator

(b Needham, Massachusetts 1882; d Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania 1945) American Painter and Illustrator. Born in Needham, Massachusetts in 1882, N.C. Wyeth began studying art at a young age. His mother encouraged him to enroll in several art schools--The Mechanics Art School in Boston, Massachusetts, The Normal Arts School and the Eric Pape School of Art in Boston--before being accepted in 1902 into Howard Pyle's School of Illustration in Wilmington, Delaware. After only one and a half years of Pyle's instruction, Wyeth's work began to appear in national magazines such as Collier's, Harpers, Scribner's and others. His first published illustration (of a bronco and rider) appeared on the February 1903 cover of The Saturday Evening Post. Wyeth went on to produce illustrations for renowned books such as the Scribner Illustration Classics, as well as advertisements and illustrations for the notable publications The Saturday Evening Post, Harper's, Scribner's, Collier's, Century, Outing, Ladies Home Journal, All Around Magazine and Popular Magazine. Wyeth's illustrations were in such demand that he was able to command top prices and select the commissions of his own choosing.

Condition B+: repaired tears, restoration and creases in central image; repaired tear at bottom, into text; small replaced losses, repaired tears and restoration in margins; repaired pin holes in corners. In the late 1920s, N.C. Wyeth was commissioned to produce twelve paintings for the Pennsylvania Railroad featuring patriotic themes. Only four were ultimately painted before the economic situation in America forced the railroad to cancel the rest of the project. The completed paintings were used for posters, and subsequently, in 1932, as calendar backs. A student of Howard Pyle, Wyeth was a prolific illustrator whose work appeared in magazines and children's books. Here, in keeping with his style as a children's book illustrator, this image romanticizes the quintessential American patriotic scene - Philadelphia in 1776 and the one-time ringing of the Liberty Bell. Pennsylvania Railroad Patriotic Posters, No. 1.

              Newell Convers (NC) Wyeth American, (1882-1945) N.C. Wyeth and His Grandson exhibition poster Signed lower right by Jamie Wyeth. A Legacy, Terra Museum of American Art, Chicago. Biography from the Archives of askART: The following is from The New York Times online edition, 1/25/2001: N.C. Wyeth (1882-1945), America's greatest illustrator as well as an accomplished easel painter, dedicated his career to depicting American subjects in a fresh, energetic manner uninfluenced by European art - "true, solid American subjects - nothing foreign about them," as he put it in 1903. Reflecting times in which unconditional loyalty to country was taken for granted and the American flag was a sacred symbol of freedom, N.C. executed works that encapsulated those very American qualities. As television anchorman Tom Brokaw points out in his catalogue essay, the patriarch of the Wyeth clan "was a man of the first half of the century, roughly from Theodore Roosevelt to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, when Americans seemed to be framed in red, white and blue bunting and the background music was "Yankee Doodle Dandy" or Kate Smith singing "God Bless America". N.C.'s lifelong veneration for America's historical traditions, growing out of his New England heritage and strengthened by his Chadds Ford residency in the history-rich Brandywine Valley, manifested itself in idealized, heroic images of such larger-than-life personalities as Paul Revere, George Washington, Nathan Hale, Thomas Jefferson, John Paul Jones and Abraham Lincoln. He painted stalwart views of Stonewall Jackson and Ulysses S. Grant and action-packed renditions of Civil War combat, suggesting valor and patriotism on both sides. Commissioned by the government during World War I to create recruiting and propaganda posters, Wyeth had an output that ranged from images of brave doughboys helping their wounded mates, in "WWI Poster" (1918), to dramatic paintings of terrified Huns surrendering to gun-toting American infantrymen in Kamerad! (1919). Along with other Americans, N.C. was horrified by stories of atrocities committed by the German Army. He responded with vivid, impassioned images, such as "The Abdication of Attila" (1917), done for Life magazine, that suggested that Kaiser Wilhelm had outstripped the infamous Attila the Hun as the epitome of "supreme evil" and the "arch-tyrant" of history. Pondering an offer from the War Department to become an official artist at the Western Front, Wyeth remarked, "I wouldn't mind a crack at a Boche or two, and would be tickled to death if I could disembowel their divine leader...." Responding with equal patriotic fervor to the challenge of World War II, Wyeth underscored the determination of Uncle Sam and our citizen army in Amateurs at War: The American Soldier in Action (1943) and the heroism of GIs in the Pacific in Marines Landing on the Beach (1944). He recognized the contributions of farmers to the Allied effort in Soldiers of the Soil (1942), an illustration for a Brown and Bigelow calendar, and in another calendar work, Our Emblem (1944), reflected the symbolism of the American eagle protecting a tranquil New England hamlet. Wyeth's colorful Buy War Bonds (1942), featuring an assertive Uncle Sam clutching Old Glory and urging on planes overhead and infantrymen on the ground, helped the Treasury Department sell a lot of bonds to back the war effort. One poster sold $200,000 worth of bonds, while another took in $1 million, according to Wyeth biographer David Michaelis. In a tempera-on-panel, The War Letter (1941) he depicted his parents on the bucolic grounds of their home in Needham, Mass. As his mother reads a letter from the morning mail and a newspaper describing overseas developments lies next to her, his father looks on. It is a poignant vignette reflecting keen home front concern about unfolding wartime events. To N.C. Wyeth, the choice between good and evil, freedom and tyranny in both World Wars was clear. His characteristically bold, forceful images, imbued with old-fashioned patriotism, helped spur an embattled America on to victory in both conflicts.

WYETH' verso and pencil titled on bottom stretcher verso, oil on canvas 48 1/4 x 40 in. (122.6 x 101.6cm) Executed circa 1936. Provenance The Artist. A gift from the above. Private Collection, Maine. By descent in the family. Private Collection, North Carolina. Exhibited On loan to "Selections from the Collection by N.C. and Jamie Wyeth" and "Selections from the Landscape Collection," The Brandywine Museum of Art, Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, May 2021-October 2022. Literature Christine B. Podmaniczky, N.C. Wyeth, A Catalogue Raisonné of Paintings, Scala, London, 2008, L.199, p. 767. The Brandywine Museum of Art, N.C. Wyeth, A Catalogue Raisonné of Paintings, NCW: 505 (accessed online, illustrated as Coastal Scene with Apple Tree in Foreground). Note Although remembered as one of America’s foremost illustrators, Newell Convers Wyeth harbored special affection for the landscape. Torn between his commission work—for the likes of Scribner’s, Harper’s Monthly, and The Saturday Evening Post—and his desire to be a fine artist, Wyeth longed to create paintings “with a soul.” The rolling hills and Sycamore-studded environs of the Brandywine River Valley, where he settled with his wife in 1908, had a profound effect on him, as did coastal Maine. For Wyeth, these were places of consequence. Free from the limitations imposed by commercial projects, he was welcome to experiment, to audition different styles, and to produce a deeply personal body of work. Arguably the most resonant of his landscapes were of the area around Port Clyde, Maine, where the Wyeth family summered from 1920 onward. "Eight Bells," their low-slung sea captain's cottage at the tip of the St. George Peninsula, offered unobstructed views of the harbor–and of the adjacent Hupper property, as depicted in the present painting. At more than 48 x 40 inches, Jetty Tree exudes the freedom that Wyeth experienced in Maine. Executed in an unrestrained, impressionist style, and in a cool palette indicative of its coastal setting, the painting is relieved of the limitations imposed by plot and process. Rather, a stout apple tree and jetty take center stage; at right, a lobsterman hunches to inspect the day's catch. In the distance, through a late-afternoon haze, are the sylvan islands of Maine's Midcoast. Fresh-to-market after a long-term loan to the Brandywine Museum of Art, Jetty Tree has been featured in two important exhibitions–one devoted to Wyeth's landscapes and another that juxtaposed Wyeth's output with that of his grandson, Jamie. For the pair, even across generations, nature remained a creative nexus. Andrew Wyeth, the most prolific of the family's landscapists, dated the present work to 1936–the same year his father executed Bright and Fair (Eight Bells), one of his most significant Maine scenes. Satisfying a desire to create personally meaningful, soulful compositions, while offering a counterpoint to his commercial ventures, works like Jetty Tree occupy an important position within the elder Wyeth's oeuvre.

Literature Vingie E. Roe, "The Grace of the Dim Strain" in Hearst's International, Vol. XLIV, no. 1, July 1923, pp. 22-23 (illustrated). Douglas Allen and Douglas Allen, Jr., N. C.

Wyeth, A Catalogue Raisonné of Paintings, NCW: 1423 (accessed online, illustrated). Note Considered one of America's greatest illustrators of the 20th century, N. C. Wyeth garnered considerable acclaim for his work with the publishing company Charles Scribner's Sons, particularly for his compelling illustrations of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island in 1911. The Father Kept the Children Near Him, but Always Young Olaf Looked with Tragic Eyes Toward the Slope where Padfoot Waited was executed in 1923, some 10 years after the artist's first commission for the publishing company's popular series of classical stories. The painting served as an illustration for Vingie Roe's The Grace of the Dim Strain, a short story published in Hearst's International in 1923. With its restricted colored palette (almost all en grisaille) and panoramic format, the present work bestows N.C. Wyeth's talent for setting a dramatic atmosphere. The characters are all lined up as if they were on a stage. Although they all look in different directions, which adds to the dynamism of the scene, they remain unified by the mustard-yellow hue present on each of their attire. The apparent strong wind, paired with the ominous clouds rolling in the distance and the impressive shadow cast at the mountain's feet, imply something ominous is about to occur, which the viewer is dreading, yet impatiently waiting, to see. Framed Dimensions: 32 1/2 x 52 1/2 x 2 1/2 in. The (apparently) relined canvas in overall good condition, with minor abrasions alongside the top outer edge of the canvas (partially covered by the frame's cast shadow) and a thin upper stretcher bar mark running along the top outer edge of the work too. With minor craquelure above the boy's head at upper right. Examination under UV light reveals scattered, faint, areas of inpainting. See for example at bottom left corner (thin horizontal line of about 3 in. long), at upper left corner (repaired scratches), center left (inpainted minor losses on the mountain range), upper right corner (minuscule series of dots in the sky), as well as center right (on the mountain range) and center (on the boy's crotch).

Condition B+: expertly-overpainted margins; repaired tears and minor overpainting in text and border. In the late 1920s, N.C. Wyeth was commissioned to produce twelve paintings for the Pennsylvania Railroad featuring patriotic themes. Only four were ultimately painted before the economic situation in America forced the railroad to cancel the rest of the project. The completed paintings were used for posters, and subsequently, in 1932, as calendar backs. A student of Howard Pyle, Wyeth was a prolific illustrator whose work appeared in magazines and children's books. Here, in keeping with his style as a children's book illustrator, this image romanticizes the establishment of Fort Prince George, at the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers, between colonists and Native Americans. We can date the poster via its entry in the Library of Congress catalogue of copyright entries from 1930. Pennsylvania Railroad Patriotic Posters, No. 3. Not in Zega.

They describe themselves at the bottom of the poster as "manufacturers of chemical materials for industry." (War & Propaganda; American)

Wyeth, The Collected Paintings, Illustrations and Murals, New York, 1972, pp. 237; 259, illus. Christine B. Podmaniczky, N.C. Wyeth, A Catalogue Raisonne of Paintings, London, 2008, I.491, p. 283, illus. Lot note: By 1903, N.C. Wyeth was already creating illustrations for American periodicals, such as the Saturday Evening Post, when he garnered additional acclaim for his work with the publishing company Charles Scribner's Sons. His compelling illustrations for that publishing house's edition of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island in 1911 led to further commissions for both magazines and books. The present work was painted in 1913 by Wyeth to be used as an illustration for Henry Van Dyke's story, The Lost Boy, published in the December issue of Harper's Monthly Magazine. The tale was later published by Harper & Bros. as a stand-alone book in 1914. The Lost Boy is a tale from Jesus's youth, in which he travels to Jerusalem with his parents for Passover and becomes separated from them while there. Leaping from Rock to Rock in Sheer Delight accompanies the passage that describes the journey to Jerusalem, which "...was a camping-trip, a wonder-walk, full of variety, with a spice of danger and a feast of delight. The Boy was the joy of the journey. His keen interest in all things seen and heard was like a refreshing spring of water to the older pilgrims...His unwearying vigor and pure gladness as he leaped down the hillsides, or scrambled among the rocks far above the path, or roamed through the fields filling his hands with flowers, was like a merry song that cheered the long miles of the way. He was glad to be alive, and it made the others glad to look at him" (Henry Van Dyke, The Lost Boy, New York, 1914, pp. 2-3). When commenting on his duty as an illustrator, Wyeth remarked that his priority is to "be engaged as a potent addition to an author's works and not merely a collection of pictures starring for themselves, bent on dividing the reader's attention and further depleting the splendid illusions created by the text. Consequently, his initial demand of the illustrator is to strike at the very heart of a story; to paint in livid colors and masses, bold statements of the important characters" ("A Suggestion and a Comment on Illustrating Fiction," The New York Times, October 13, 1912). The artist achieves his goal brilliantly in the present work, which depicts the young Jesus as a boy reveling in his youthful energy and the freedom and adventure of the journey. The composition is dynamic, with the subject perched on a boulder and his body outlined against the clear sky. Behind him stretches the rolling hills of the springtime Jordan valley. He reaches his flower-filled hand joyously upward while a breeze ruffles his striped tunic. Wyeth created two additional illustrations for The Lost Boy, including Come, Live with Us, For I Think Thou art Chosen and When He Comes He Will Rule Over the Whole World. In a letter written by Wyeth, the artist declares that "Harper's were delighted with my interpretation of Christ..." (NCW to Henriette Zirngiebel Wyeth, dated in another hand Oct. 3, 1913, WFA). Of the three images, Leaping from Rock to Rock in Sheer Delight is the most vibrant and successfully conjures a spirit of boyish happiness and discovery. It fully realizes Wyeth's belief that his works were to not only complement but to enhance the narrative.

XLVIII, no. 6, September 1906 (frontispiece illustration in black & white) Douglas Allen and Douglas Allen, Jr., N.C.

Lot note: Renowned artist of the Golden Age of Illustration, N.C. Wyeth achieved success after studying at Howard Pyle's school and selling his first drawing to the Saturday Evening Post in 1903, at the age of 21. Wyeth would go on to capture real life, historical characters that were later romanticized in literary sources. The Outing Magazine, an American periodical covering a variety of sporting activities, commissioned the artist in 1906 to create a frontispiece illustration for John R. Spears' article "The Buccaneers, Drake and the Golden Hind." In a letter dated March 1906, Wyeth wrote to his father: "I've started one of five drawings for Outing and have it on the way to completion. I made one attempt which proved to be unsatisfactory, the second is more successful. Mr. Pyle is much pleased with it and claims it to be a big jump ahead. The subject is Sir Francis Drake at the top of a tropical tree gazing for the first time on the South Seas." (NCW to ANW, "Dear Papa, I just received the double letter..," undated but March 1906, Wyeth Family Archives.) Almost two weeks later, he reported: "I've finished a picture for Outing also, (Sir Francis Drake at the top of a tree...)....I managed to get one of the best illustrations I ever did from it. It pleased me greatly as it was not the result of an inspiration, but of the weaving to-gether of cold hard facts and technical knowledge..." (NCW to HZW, "Dear Mama, To-day its bright and cold..." undated but March 1906 by context, Wyeth Family Archives) Spears' article recounts Sir Francis Drake's 1572 expedition to the Isthmus of Panama, where he attacked Nombre de Dios, a major port of call for the Spanish treasure fleet. According to the tale, the attack was unsuccessful, and Drake and his men spent the rainy season hiding in the backwaters of Panama. When good weather returned, Drake and several of his men crossed the isthmus to see when the pack-mule trains of treasure would leave from the recently arrived Spanish flotilla and travel to Nombre de Dios. "...with cheerful hearts the little band started forth and for seven days worked laboriously...Finally as they neared the city they came to a large hill, on the crest of which grew a ceiba tree that towered high above the surrounding forest. Here they paused while Drake...climbed up among the many clinging vines until he reached a limb where his view was unobstructed, and looking away to the south saw for the first time the waters of the South Sea...filled with a feeling he could not describe, Drake raised his hands toward heaven and begged Almighty God "˜to give him life and leave to sail an English ship in those seas.'" (John R. Spears, "The Buccaneers, Drake and the Golden Hind," The Outing Magazine, vol. XLVIII, no. 6, September 1906, p. 744) Wyeth's admiration for Pyle's tutelage is revealed in When Drake Saw for the First Time the Waters of the South Sea through the careful attention to authentic details. The adventurer's costume of slashed doublet, bright hose, and high leather boots epitomizes the idealized buccaneer and adventurer of the 16th and 17th centuries. However, Wyeth unquestionably draws from his brilliant imagination to achieve an aesthetic that is undeniably his own. The composition vividly captures the sense of discovery, with Drake framed by a dramatic cloud as he hovers between bright sky and sea and the lush, dark jungle foliage below. As Douglas Allen explains, "there is a heroic treatment of anatomy, for example, that makes a Wyeth masculine type so gloriously strong and virile"”you look for a new discovery and technique"”then that romance of color, of wave, of cloud..." (N.C. Wyeth: The Collected Paintings, Illustrations and Murals, New York, 1972, p. 140). With his attention to both accuracy of narrative as well as an expert application of composition, light and color, the present painting is an impressive example of Wyeth's illustration work.

A student of Howard Pyle, Wyeth was a prolific illustrator whose work appeared in magazines and children's books.

Here, he idealizes a meeting between Native Americans and Colonists to establish Fort Prince George in modern-day Pittsburgh. In reality, the Virginians constructing the fort were captured by 1,000 French soldiers and Indians led by Claude-Pierre Pécaudy de Contrecœur. Wyeth certainly overlooked historical facts in favor of patriotic effect. (Railway; Travel; American)
