8 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and held by 1,527 libraries worldwide
"An American painting dynasty is portrayed in this biography of N.C. Wyeth."--BOOK JACKET. "His name summons up our earliest images of the beloved books we read as children. His illustrations for Scribner's Illustrated Classics (Treasure Island, Kidnapped, The Last of the Mohicans, The Yearling) are etched into the collective memory of generations of readers. He was hailed as the greatest American illustrator of his day. For forty-three years, starting in 1902, he painted landscapes, still lifes, portraits, and murals as well as illustrations for a long shelf of world literature. Yet he proclaimed "the uselessness of clinging to illustration and hoping to make it a great art." He judged himself a failure, believing that illustration was of no importance."--BOOK JACKET. "David Michaelis's biography of N.C. Wyeth tells the story of his family through four generations. It is a family saga that begins and ends with the accidental deaths of small boys, a gothic tale that shows how N.C., while learning to live a safe and familiar domestic life, endangered himself and his children by concealing part of the family legacy - depression, suicide, incest."--BOOK JACKET. "He found in fatherhood the foremost expression of his character - trying to create in the Wyeth homestead his dream of childhood at its most enchanting. He held his children enthralled through their adult lives. He persuaded his inventor son, Nat, to live at home, shepherded his daughter Ann's career as a composer, and taught his three other children - Henriette, Carolyn, and Andrew (N.C. was Andrew's only teacher) - to paint."--BOOK JACKET.
