NC (Newell Convers)Wyeth (1882-1945) was an American artist who began drawing as a child. Through out his childhood, he received training from several schools until the age 20 when he was enrolled into Howard Pyle School for the sessions of 1902. Under Pyle’s teachings, Wyeth began to blossom as an artist. This led to him getting his first illustration assignment within the same year. He was asked to create a cover for The Saturday Evening Post. Later he went on to do more illustrations for other magazines until becoming a contributor to Harpers, McClures, and Scribners. Wyeth graduated from Pyle’s School in 1904, but still continued to use the studio to paint.
