N.C. Wyeth was an American artist and illustrator who created over 3,000 paintings and illustrated 112 books, 25 of them for Scribner’s, which is the work for which he is best-known. Wyeth’s art work graced the pages of my childhood books and his illustrations helped bring to life for me characters such as Long John Silver and King Arthur. I owe my passion for reading and for art in a special way to N.C. Wyeth. He captured my imagination when I was young and hasn’t let go of it to this day. I have created this page as a tribute to Wyeth so that I might share his wondrous and inspiring art work with you in the hopes he will also capture your imagination. I have tried to gather together as many of Wyeth’s illustrations as I can find. Many are missing and many of the ones I do have are of poor quality, but hopefully you will enjoy the ones I am able to share.
