About this title


A exhibition catalog of the paintings of N.C. and James Wyeth that depict the changing view of patriotism in America.

From Booklist:

The great twentieth-century American painter Andrew Wyeth resisted the overtly patriotic subjects that his father and his son embraced. That is probably just as well but says nothing against N. C and James Wyeth's very different brands of patriotism. N. C. lived between the bellicose presidencies of the two Roosevelts, when national self-confidence and crusading fervor flourished. He created dramatic visions of the nation's nobility and its leaders' spiritual force. James is of the Vietnam and Watergate generation. His patriotism is humbler and also ironic, though not always as ironic as commentator Lauren Raye Smith thinks; surely the big flag hung on the rustic house in Islanders isn't "engulfing or protecting the two men" on the porch: it's expressing them. Arguing with the commentator is one of the prime pleasures art books enable, and this example features plenty of beautiful, meaningful pictures to admire and inspect, to boot. Ray Olson
