The Brandywine River Valley, located in southeastern Pennsylvania, is home to the late Andrew Wyeth and birthplace of an important art movement known as the Brandywine Tradition. As this comprehensive guide unfolds, you see that this scenic valley near Philadelphia is also a microcosm of major art trends in America. Explore works and lives of 100 contemporary painters, sculptors, and photographers that include magic realists, impressionists, modernists, and more. With more than 400 images, the book features nationally known artists, graduates of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (the nation’s oldest art school), and self-taught artists who have built successful careers with compelling, story-filled paintings.
