Brandywine River Museum

On June 14th 2012 I visited the Brandywine River Museum, which started out as a 19th-century grist mill and is now internationally known for its unparalleled collection of works by three generations of Wyeths and its fine collection of American illustration, still life and landscape painting.

This is a view of the Actual Brandywine River in Chadds Ford, PA, from the inside of the museum.

Looking to the left at the river and bank, notice the bronze cow chilling in the shade

Here are some pictures of some of the paintings,
 though you are not allowed to take pictures in the museum,
 so I was stopped soon after beginning.

I was pretty sad about the no photography rule, especially when we got to the N.C. Wyeth collection, an artist and painter I highly recommend that anyone-everyone check out, WOW!
So here are some pics stolen from random online sources to give you a glimpse of some N.C. Wyeth.

Also Jamie Wyeth's portrait of Pig in the museum blows my mind, when you see the paint in person it's absolutely awesome.
Photographs do not do justice to a painting in comparison to seeing it in person!
