masterwork, the special beauty of silver actually becomes part of James Wyeth’s
design. The rich tone of the precious
metal complements the finely detailed etching, while the brilliant reflectivity
of silver helps capture the daylight which filters through the trees and is
mirrored in the waters of the Brandywine
River. Overall, a sense of timeless tranquility

James Wyeth’s work
advances and strengthens one of the main currents in American Art – the
Brandywine Tradition. This continuing
tradition emphasizes complete technical mastery of the art of the illustrator
and concerns itself largely with Native American scenes and subjects. Characteristic of the Brandywine Tradition is
the recurrent theme of the relationship between individual man and the
timeless, impersonal majesty of nature.
