Enjoy a public, docent-led tour of American Master Illustrators: N.C. Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish, Norman Rockwell before closing day on July 19.

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.
