The Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford has long been known as the home of works by three generations of Wyeths - magazine and book illustrator N.C. Wyeth, whom Outing Magazine called "one of our greatest, if not our greatest, painter of American outdoor life" in 1907, his son Andrew Wyeth,

one of the best known painters of the mid-20th century, especially his iconic painting Christina's World, and now Jamie Wyeth, who like his father had his first solo show at age 20 and has remarked that everyone in his family paints, "excluding possibly the dogs."

The Museum offers not only collections of the Wyeths' and other painters' work, but also a chance to tour the Wyeth studios. And in a special exhibition called Creative Spaces, up through September 8th, you can see photographs of the working areas of 38 of the nation's most influential 19th and 20th century artists, like Jackson Pollock, Grant Wood and Georgia O'Keeffe. Seeing where these innovators worked gives a depth of understanding about their process and vision.

While you're visiting the Brandywine, be sure to see the main exhibition. Through November the exhibit offers views of Monhegan Island off the coast of Maine separated by a century, with works by Rockwell Kent (1882-1971) and the contemporary Jamie Wyeth. There are also wildflower gardens and tours of N.C. Wyeth's home and a nearby farm that inspired Andrew Wyeth. Go here to watch a video of Jamie Wyeth working in his studio on his island off the Coast of Maine.
