Andrew Newell Wyeth (1917 – 2009)

Born in 1917 to the famous illustrator Newell Convers (N.C.) Wyeth and his wife in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, Andrew Wyeth grew up to become one of the most successful American artists of the 20th century. Andrew Wyeth’s only art education was from his father, who preached drawing and painting from nature and life. This methodology would be the foundation for Andrew Wyeth’s Regionalist style for the rest of his life. At the age of 20, Andrew Wyeth’s first solo exhibition of watercolors was presented at the Macbeth Gallery in New York City.

Andrew Wyeth and his wife, Betsy James, who he married in 1940, split their time between Pennsylvania and Maine. While in Maine, Andrew met Christin Olson, who would become his most famous model and the subject of “Christina’s World”, one of the most recognized paintings in American art. The Olsen farm in Cushing, Maine has since been purchased by the Farnsworth Museum, who held Wyeth’s first major museum exhibition in 1951, and is the first property to be added to the National Register of Historic Places for being the site of a painting.

Andrew Wyeth is the recipient of the 2007 National Medal of Arts; the 1988 Congressional Gold Medal; the 1963 Presidential Medal of Freedom; and in 1977, Andrew was elected to the French Académie des Beaux-Arts, making him the first American artist since John Singer Sargent to achieve this honor. His works can be found in the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.; the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, Japan; and the Palazzo Reale, Milan, Italy, among others. Large collections of Andrew Wyeth’s works can be found at the Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania and the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, Maine.
