People and PlacesBook - 2017
"The major paintings of iconic American artist Andrew Wyeth (1917--2009) presented together in an accessible volume. Published on the occasion of the centennial of the artist's birth, this handsome book highlights works spanning the entirety of the artist's seven-decade career painting the landscapes and people he knew in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, where he lived, and in Maine, where he summered. Many of his most important landscapes and portraits were created in and around his Chadds Ford studio, now part of the Brandywine River Museum of Art, with which Andrew Wyeth was intimately connected since its founding in 1971. A short introduction provides an overview of his life, and descriptive captions contextualize some fifty of the artist's finest and most beloved paintings, including Pennsylvania Landscape (1942), Wind from the Sea (1947), Christina's World (1948), Trodden Weed (1951), Roasted Chestnuts (1956), Braids (1977), and Pentecost (1989). Readers will also be treated to works previously unseen, such as Betsy's Beach (2006) and Crow Tree (2007)."--provided by Amazon.com.
