Artist Research (N.C. Wyeth)

I am pretty sure this is the manliest drawing I have ever seen in my life.


  • Drew many manly things.
  • Both an illustrator and a painter, and considered them seperate disciplines. 
  • Oldest of four brothers.
  • Went out west, visited the Navajo, worked as a cowboy, delivered mail for money for the trip home.
  • Tended to portray Native Americans in a sympathetic light.
  • Hoped to earn enough from illustrating in order to become a REAL FER SERIOUS PAINTER but never did. Eventually grew really bitter and disillusioned with commercialism because of it.
