N.C. Wyeth, who led a multi-generational family of American art royalty and inspired “Star Wars” creator George Lucas and “Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin, gets a new look in an exhibition of his illustrations and paintings. Jeffrey Brown reports on this more well-rounded portrait of an artist who painted scenes of rural life, but who remains best known for his book illustrations.
