Library Journal
You can almost hear Kate Smith belting out "God Bless America" as you leaf through this unadulterated medley of 103 nationalistic images (where are the pirates?) by N.C. (1882-1945) and grandson James (b. 1960), two poles of the Wyeth orb who served as U.S. war artists. Soldiers, flags, battle scenes, eagles, and portraits of stoic presidents (reflecting James's fascination with the Kennedy Clan) abound in this catalog to a five-venue exhibition that opened at the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, ME, in August. The most engaging works are James's sketches of the Watergate hearings and trials. Brief, uncritical, and jingoistic texts by curator Lauren Raye Smith, N.C. biographer David Michaelis, and anchor Tom Brokaw add little to the plates, which reproduce the artwork passably. Libraries are better served by Michaelis's N.C. Wyeth: A Biography (LJ 10/15/98), Andrew Wyeth: Autobiography (LJ 12/95), and Thomas Hoving's writings on the Wyeths.--Russell T.
