American Master Illustrators: N.C. Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish, Norman Rockwell
Huth, Boeing, Salmon & Haws Galleries
March 22 – June 21, 2020
This exclusive exhibition features approximately 35 original works by three of America’s most celebrated and beloved artists — master illustrators Maxfield Parrish, Norman Rockwell, and N.C. Wyeth. The stories these artists tell are well-known parts of American history. Parrish used the works of old masters to create his stories, saying that he used paintings to create his own “world of make-believe.” Rockwell created the small-town America that we all love with his very personal paintings. Wyeth, the father of artist Andrew Wyeth, carved out a rich legacy of historical work, especially his paintings of the West and of Native Americans that illustrated stories in Scribner’s magazines and books. Organized by the National Museum of American Illustration, Newport, RI.
Due to ongoing concerns about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the Huntsville Museum of Art has postponed its American Master Illustrator’s opening preview party on Thursday, March 19.
