The works of illustrator N.C. Wyeth (1882-1945) are receiving new focus this summer. "Rip Van Winkle," an oil on canvas created for David McKay's book, is part of "Myth, Magic and Mystery: One Hundred Years of American Children's Book Illustrations," a traveling exhibition organized by the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, Va. The Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford, Pa., is marking its 25th anniversary this summer by opening up a recent acquisition - Wyeth's nearby studio. The structure, designed by the artist, has been restored to look as it did when Wyeth worked there - with the artist's easels and furniture, books and other belongings all around, in a building with wide spaces for mural painting.
