"Before Andrew and Jamie, there was N. C. Wyeth. The star student of Howard Pyle's Brandywine School, Newell Convers Wyeth (1882–1945) created more than 3,000 illustrations in the course of his career. This original full-color collection focuses on his most popular illustrations, featuring early works that date from 1910-30. More than 100 iconic images include scenes from The Last of the Mohicans, The Mysterious Stranger, Robin Hood, Robinson Crusoe, Rip Van Winkle, The Boy's King Arthur, and other books. Wyeth's fame and greatest commercial success derived from his work for Scribners' Illustrated Classics. Starting with the 1911 edition of Treasure Island, the artist provided images for more than 25 volumes in the series. Many of those illustrations appear here, in a treasury of stirring, dramatic visions that captured the imaginations of the storybook readers of a century ago and continue to speak to modern audiences."--Publisher's description

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1934 Harvey Dunn was teaching painting at the Grand Central School of Art, and at The Art Students League. A former student of Howard Pyle, and deeply influenced by the instruction he received at the Brandywine studios, Dunn's own teaching was a great continuation of what Pyle had put in place. Of all Pyle's students, many of which went on to teach--Dunn had the greatest reputation for teaching among them. A series of his comments and criticisms from this time were taken down by a student, and published in a slim book printed in a small quantity. Accompanied by a group of Dunn's woodcut images, this volume delivers a sense of what the Brandywine atmosphere offered its students, many of which went on to become the most well regarded and important illustrators of the twentieth century. N.C. Wyeth, Frank Schoonover, Violet Oakley, Jessie Willcox Smith--all studied alongside Dunn under Pyle, but Dunn went on to teach the next generation. This is the best preserved record of his critiques"--
