Catalogue Note

John McCoy studied fine arts at Cornell University and at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Fontainebleau, France before beginning private art training with N.C. Wyeth. He worked alongside Andrew Wyeth and the two artists shared a fascination with capturing the effects of light and atmosphere in their landscape paintings. In 1925, McCoy married Ann, the youngest daughter of N.C. Wyeth.
