N.C. Wyeth's Pilgrims

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

N.C. Wyeth's Pilgrim Mural "Turkey Hunt"
N.C. Wyeth (1882-1945) painted a set of murals about the spirit of New England for the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. He said the paintings were an expression of his own life and heritage. "All creative expression, be it in painting, writing, or music, if it pretends to appeal warmly and eloquently, must spring from the artist's own factual and emotional experience."
Children's book with Wyeth's Pilgrim murals: N.C. Wyeth's Pilgrims
Quote from the classic biography: N.C. Wyeth - The collected paintings, illustrations and murals by Douglas Jr Allen
