Jesse and I took some students to the Brandywine River Museum the weekend before last (ugh...it's been forever since I've updated this blog). The Brandywine is a beautiful museum set in the countryside of Chadds Ford, PA and devoted to the work of historical illustrators as well as the Wyeth family (N.C., Andrew, and Jaime).
During our trip, an exhibit of illustrated Edgar Allan Poe stories filled one of the galleries. These were a couple of my favorite images from the day:
|Odilon Redon, The Eye, Like a Strange Balloon, Moves Towards Infinity (1882) lithograph|
|W. Heath Robinson, The Raven from The Poems of Edgar Allan Poe|
|Hugo Steiner-Prag, Tamerlane (1943) lithograph|
|N.C. Wyeth, Captain Nemo, 1918|
