The Brandywine River Museum is a museum of regional and American art in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, on the banks of the Brandywine Creek. The museum showcases the art of Andrew Wyeth, his father N.C. Wyeth, and his son Jamie Wyeth. The museum’s permanent collection also features American illustration, still life works, and landscape painting by Jasper Francis Cropsey, Harvey Dunn, Peter Hurd, Maxfield Parrish, Howard Pyle, William Trost Richards, and Jessie Willcox Smith. The museum is housed in a converted 19th century mill with a steel and glass addition. The museum also owns and operates tours of three nearby National Historic Landmarks: the N. C. Wyeth House and Studio, the Kuerner Farm, inspiration for nearly 1,000 works of art by Andrew Wyet, and the Andrew Wyeth Studio.
