The Hill School is releasing limited edition prints of our N.C. Wyeth painting collection. These paintings were created by Wyeth to illustrate poems for the book "Poems of American Patriotism," edited by Brander Matthews in 1922. The collection was donated to The Hill in 1923 by Michael F. Sweeney, former coach and physical director from 1896-1936. Two prints will be issued biannually.The prints available at this time are "The Picket Guard," "Barbara Frietchie," "Nathan Hale," "Washington," "Paul Revere's Ride," "Warren's Address," "The Old Continentals" and "Washington Serving Liberty." Each print is approximately 11”x14” and matted to fit a standard 16”x20” frame (frame not included). Cost per print is $125 plus tax and shipping.
Prints may be purchased online at The Hill School Campus Store or by calling 610-705-1291.
Release of each pair of prints is based on the chronological order in which they appear in “Poems of American Patriotism.” Each print is individually numbered from an edition of 300 and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. Sequential, numbered prints will be released in the order in which they are purchased, starting with 2/300. In addition to the archival matting, each print comes with its accompanying poem and a brief history of the collection.
Production may take 7-10 days. Shipping may take up to 5-7 days. Please allow up to two weeks to receive your print. If you have any questions about the prints, please e-mail Jonathan Dressler '99, Hill regional development officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org
