Andrew Wyeth: Rememberance

Andrew Wyeth, Braids

To commemorate the death of Andrew Wyeth earlier this year, the Seattle Art Museum pulled together a very focused tribute to the artist. The exhibit features seven paintings that focus on Wyeth's life in Chadds Ford, Pa., where he was raised, spent most of his adult years, and where he died. Of the 7 paintings total, 5 are of "Helga", a German woman who worked as a care-giver next door. Wyeth painted Helga hundreds of times in the 1970s and 1980s, while at the same time keeping it hidden from his wife. Overall, the people and places that Wyeth brought to life, conjured his own remembrances. Enjoy this tribute to an exceptional painter that shared so much with us over his 91 years. This exhibition will be open through October 18th, 2009.
