Join The Museum on a day trip to the Brandywine River Museum of Art for a guided tour of the special exhibition From Homer to Hopper: Experiment and Ingenuityin American Art. This exhibition, organized by the Phillips Collection in Washington D.C., reflects the rich diversity of style and expression in American art created between 1870 and 1950. The exhibition features fifty-four superb paintings by Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Jacob Lawrence, Georgia O’Keeffe, Horace Pippin, Maurice Prendergast, and many others who revolutionized picture-making in the United States. The exhibition traces the course of modern art in the works of these artists—from the bold, investigative realism of Winslow Homer and Thomas Eakins at the end of the nineteenth century, to the reductive views and psychological insights of Edward Hopper and Morris Graves at mid-twentieth century.
Following the special exhibition tour, guests will be taken on a guided tour of the N.C. Wyeth House & Studio. N. C. Wyeth (1882-1945) was one of America’s foremost illustrators in the 20th century. His renowned images of swashbuckling pirates, armor-clad knights and hard-riding cowboys fired the imaginations of readers for generations.
