Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The great twentieth-century American painter Andrew Wyeth resisted the overtly patriotic subjects that his father and his son embraced. That is probably just as well but says nothing against N. C and James Wyeth's very different brands of patriotism. N. C. lived between the bellicose presidencies of the two Roosevelts, when national self-confidence and crusading fervor flourished. He created dramatic visions of the nation's nobility and its leaders' spiritual force. James is of the Vietnam and Watergate generation. His patriotism is humbler and also ironic, though not always as ironic as commentator Lauren Raye Smith thinks; surely the big flag hung on the rustic house in Islanders isn't "engulfing or protecting the two men" on the porch: it's expressing them. Arguing with the commentator is one of the prime pleasures art books enable, and this example features plenty of beautiful, meaningful pictures to admire and inspect, to boot. Ray Olson

It should be called "Patriots and Portraits". I have the book and went to see the show, but the title is a misnomer. You will be very disappointed if you are looking for N. C. Wyeth's pirate paintings. The are no Pirate paintings. The N.C. Wyeth paintings are mainly war and patriotic painting. The Jamie Wyeth paintings are mainly portraits of patriots.

This book offers many nostalgic moments. It is pure delight to rediscover N.C.Wyeth's posters. "One Nation" speaks to and illustrates various periods of the history of our nation through the outstanding work of James Wyeth and the great illustrations by his grandfather, N.C. Wyeth. The comments by Tom Brokaw are very well done. This book is so very well organized. It appeals to so many of the senses as well as the nostalgic emotions of the WW II generation, the Kennedy generation as well as bringing some of our earliest Presidents to life. Especially enjoyed the drawings of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.

This book shows the comparison of grandfather (N.C) and grandson's (Jamie) work. An excellent study. I have always considerend N.C.'s work superior to any of the other Wyeths, Andrew specifically and in particular. This book pretty much affirms it. Check it out.

Format: Hardcover
This video is very close to being great, but I wish the producers would update it with N.C.Wyeth's pirate paintings, and Jamie Wyeth's new painting "Night Vision."
I bought the video "Patriots and Pirates" because it seems to fit in with the theme of Liberty against the Law that my English composition classes was studying. The beginnings of liberty on sailing ships, the American Revolution, and the modern take on patriotism: all these appear in Howard Pyle, N.C.Wyeth, and Jamie Wyeth's work. Jamie Wyeth called this video "Pirates and Patriots," which seems to have more of a ring to it. Please make a new version with the pirates, to complete what was a great idea for a video.
