N.C. Wyeth and Kidnapped.

Whenever I think of Kidnapped I think of the sensational art work of NC Wyeth.

Born on October 22, 1882, in Needham, Massachusetts, N.C. Wyeth studied under Howard Pyle to develop his craft as a painter/illustrator. He earned acclaim for the art he provided for Scribner’s Illustrated Classics book series, with titles like KIdnapped and Robinson Crusoe. He lived for an extensive time in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, where he was killed in a train crash on October 19, 
I love this picture of the assassin ( Alan?) fleeing the scene of his crime.
This is my favourite with Alan and Davie defending the roundhouse. Note the look of desperation on Alan's face.
