American art hosted by a riverside nature preserve

The art galleries at the Brandywine River Museum offer a unique experience: enjoying famous paintings in an exquisite riverside setting of a nature preserve. The rolling hills, snowy drifts, and the ever present river that inspired the many of the displayed paintings are merely feet away.

The museum’s complete collection features over 2,500 landscapes, still lives, genre paintings, and illustrations from hundreds of 19th- and 20th-century American artists.

The Brandywine River Museum is well known for their extensive collection of paintings by Andrew Wyeth, one of America’s most famous painters. The art galleries also display the illustrations of his father, N.C.Wyeth, and the realistic paintings of his son, Jamie.
