I love art books in the coffee table style. BIG pictures, just enough text to feed the thoughts in your own head, and lost and lots of...BIG pictures. Color and B&W.

This is a nifty collection of the paintings and illustrations of the great N.C. Wyeth. The master illustrator and father of Andrew Wyeth was a wizard with the brushes and pencils.

I found this book at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. It is a wonderful comprehensive collection of NC Wyeth's painting, sketches and illustrations.

Later I discovered the beauty of his paintings at Brandywine and other museums.
