Patriots & Pirates: NC Wyeth in Needham

NC Wyeth left Needham as a young man, but despite this long absence, he maintained a nostalgic longing for Needham and his family. This nostalgia was an inseparable part of his art – a source of inspiration and identity. Needham images, especially his houses and his family, would be recurring themes in his work.
