A number of talented artists of the early 20th century achieved lasting distinction as illustrators of short stories and novels. N. C. Wyeth was among the best of these legendary illustrators. His flair for effective design, rich color, and the free handling of paint is evident in his paintings that were published as illustrations in Collier’s Weekly in the early Twentieth Century. Wyeth’s work delighted readers and kept the “myth of the West” alive long after the frontier ceased to exist.
