The Boy’s King Arthur, Part II

Back cover of Boy's King Arthur

Another illustration from The Boy’s King Arthur, being Sir Thomas Malory’s History of King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table (1922).

Edited by Sidney Lanier and illustrated by N. C. Wyeth.

This one comes from the back cover (I think).

A reminder that you can view this painting in the canvas at Brandywine River Museum’s N.C. Wyeth Catalogue Raisonné here.

You may not go, but at least you can think about it.

Front page

The Boy’s King Arthur, being Sir Thomas Malory’s History of King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table (1922).

Edited by Sidney Lanier and illustrated by N. C. Wyeth.

I remember seeing this book when I was younger; I can’t remember if I read it.

But the illustrations stuck out to me – so much so that I recognized them right away when I found them clicking through the internet the other day.

The picture above is from the title page, you can see much more of Mr. Wyeth’s work here.

Or see them for yourself at the Brandywine River Museum’s N.C. Wyeth Catalogue Raisonné here – which is amazing to me. I saw these paintings as a kid, but I could visit the originals now? Pretty fantastic!
