We were delighted today to have a group visiting who had traveled all the way from China. The group included an artist who couldn’t resist the beautiful views from our atrium where he spent the afternoon painting. The wonders of #museumlife.

Happy #AnimationDay! We are celebrating with these #fun shots of the team from Pixar Animation Studios @Pixar during their visit to the Brandywine River Museum of Art earlier this month. The team had a special interest in the work of Andrew Wyeth and we hear they had a wonderful day. They even left behind a few sketches of their most beloved #characters from Pixar movies Up, WALL-E and Cars for Mary Landa!

Our archive collection includes many period photographs of paintings and drawings by N. C. Wyeth, a number of which document canvases or drawings that are no longer extant. For example, these two photographs picture murals that no longer exist--indeed, the buildings which housed the murals no longer exist.

This is a photograph of the architectural setting of Wyeth’s first mural project, two paintings of Native Americans created in 1912 to decorate the Hotel Utica in Utica, New York. We know that by Dec. 1939, the murals had been destroyed, probably in renovation. Although Wyeth painted variants of these paintings, including a design used on plates for the Hotel, this is one of the few photographs known of the original Hotel Utica murals.

The third photograph documents one wall of murals Wyeth did for the Submarine Grill of the Traymore Hotel in Atlantic City in 1915. These murals were painted in Chadds Ford and then applied to the walls in the grill room. According to one account, “the color scheme is daring—deep ultramarine blue, flamingo red, sea green and white…broken by pilasters of gold.” Would we had a color photograph!
