Drafting the Declaration of Independence Cross Stitch Pattern - Newell Convers Wyeth

This fine-art historical downloadable cross stitch design was developed from the painting, Drafting the Declaration of Independence, done by American realist artist, Newell Convers Wyeth, in 1776. This is a historical scene depicting the time and energy spent on the drafting of the Declaration of Independence. Wyeth’s son, American artist Andrew Wyeth, said his father often chose to illustrate the less intense moments in a story, which the senior Wyeth skillfully did in this painting.

The most famous depiction of the signing was done by artist John Trumbell, who painted the large-scale painting depicting The Committee of Five presenting the draft of the Declaration on June 28, 1776, which was later signed. This painting resides in the United States Capitol Rotunda. Andrew Wyeth said of his father, “He always picked a scene that was not described very much.” N. C. Wyeth once remarked, “Why take a dramatic episode that is described in every detail and do it? Instead I create something that will add to the story.”
