N.C. Wyeth Catalogue Raisonné
The Brandywine River Museum's N.C. Wyeth Catalogue Raisonné is an extensive compilation of detailed information regarding one of America's foremost illustrators and painters, N.C. Wyeth. Since 1990, the project, originally conceived by Betsy James Wyeth, the artist’s daughter-in-law, has been generously supported by the Wyeth Foundation for American Art.

Wyeth, designed by the artist and restored to appear as it did when he died, houses his easels and furniture, hundreds of books, props of many different kinds collected from around the country, and more.
