Andrew Wyeth - BIOGRAPHY
Andrew Newell Wyeth (July 12, 1917 - January 16, 2009) was an extremely well-known American Artist who was extremely popular in the middle of the twentieth century.
He painted one of the most well-known paintings in America - Christina's World (Collection of Museum of Modern Art in New York City)
However his the representational nature of his work fell out of favour with the contemporary art critics and scholars and his work was typically ignored by them from the 1960s onwards despite an enduring popularity with the public. However Wyeth - who always said he painted for himself - continued to paint until just before his death and continued to delight his admirers, collectors, and the public which loved his paintings.
He was born in in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania in the Brandywine Valley near Philadelphia. He was the youngest child of artist and illustrator and artist N.C. Wyeth - who illustrated many of the adventure story books of the early 20th century such as "Treasure Island" and "The Last of the Mohicans." His father provided him with early lessons in art
In 1937, at the age of 20, his first solo exhibition of watercolour paintings at the Macbeth Gallery in New York sold out. This indicated how popular his paintings were to become during the rest of his career.
Wyeth married Betsy James in 1940 having met her in Maine in 1939. She was a huge influence on him after his father died and managed his affairs. They had two sons Nicholas and Jamie - with Jamie also becoming an artist.
He was identified by Time Magazine in 1950 as being one of the greatest American artists. He became symbolic for some as the artist representing the real and representational and was ranged against the new vanguard of expressionist painters such as Jackson Pollock
In 1986, Wyeth made public a collection of 246 artworks of a neighbour called Helga Testorf. These comprised drawings, studies and paintings. Two aspects which raised eyebrows were that many of the works were of a nude Helga and these had all apparently been kept secret from his wife.
Wyeth was a very popular artist with both museums (exhibitions tended to generate high attendances) and the public until the end of his life. His artwork is now in many major and important collections in the USA - including those of major museums.
Awards he received
- 1963 - the Presidential Medal of Freedom - from President John F. Kennedy (first American painter to receive this award)
- 1977 - elected to the Academie des Beaux-Arts in Paris, France (the first American painter since John Singer-Sargent)
- 1978 - asked to join the Soviet Academy of the Arts
- 1980 - elected to Britain's Royal Academy (first living American painter).
- 1988 - Congressional Gold Medal

By their very nature they provide a comprehensive biographical resource about his life and a commentary on the value of his art in America.

Andrew Wyeth: A Secret Life
RECOMMENDED: Rated an average of 4.5 out of 5 stars by 28 customer reviews
Richard Meryman's biography of the painter, Andrew Wyeth attempts to examine the character and complex personality of this famous painter - and the motivations and processes he used to produce his paintings.
The book is based on 30 years of research - including frequent visits and conversations with the artist and his family and friends.
About the Artwork
"I paint the things that emotionally mean a lot to me....
I just can't make up something.
It's got to be something I have felt."— Andrew Wyeth
Wyeth's approach to painting
Most of Wyeth's drawings and paintings stem from subject matter close to home. Most are of the people, buildings, interiors and landscapes associated with:
his studio, home, landscapes and neighbours in Chadd's Ford, Pennsylvania - where the Kueners Farm was situated. in 1948, he began painting Anna and Karl Kuerner. He also met Helga Testorf at the Kuener Farm and then painted her between 1971-85. When they were revealed to the world, there was a scandal as it was assumed she had been his lover. Leonard E.B. Andrews (1925-2009) purchased almost the entire collection of Helga Paintings so that they could be preserved as a collection - and then sold them three years later
- his summer home in Cushing, Maine - next to the Olsen Farm, where Christina Olsen lived
However his paintings also portrayed a complex and enigmatic inner life.
His father's death in a car accident in 1945 acted as a profound influence on Andrew Wyeth's subsequent style.
After the accident, his paintings:
- became more serious, metaphorical - and at time intensely emotional
- however some of the paintings are an abstracted notion of an emotional response to events and situations in his life.
- nevertheless subjects were rendered in a very realistic way
- and he began to use a muted palette
His approach to painting was to make several studies in an abstract way - using pencil or 'washy brushy' watercolour before beginning a painting proper. He painted in an apparently realistic way using watercolour, drybrush (a watercolor style in which the water is squeezed from the brush), and egg tempera.
Words used to describe his art by those who preferred more less realistic and more contemporary art were "sentimental" and "illustrative". The comments probably say more about those saying them.
“I think the great weakness in most of my work is subject matter. There’s too much of it.”— Andrew Wyeth

Andrew Wyeth's Studio - Chadds Ford Studio opens to public in Summer 2012
In the summer of 2012, Andrew Wyeth's studio at Chadd's Ford was opened to the public for the first time. Wyeth's widow gave the studio to the Brandywine Museum who then restored it. Tours take place between April and mid-November - see the website listed below for more details of dates and timings. A complimentary Brandywine River Museum shuttle bus provides transportation to the Andrew Wyeth Studio.
Andrew Wyeth painted in his studio at Chadd's Ford Wyeth for nearly 70 years - from 1940 until 2008. There are very many paintings which were painted in this studio. The museums suggests that thousands of works of art are associated with this studio.
The Brandywine Museum has restored the rooms to the way they would have looked at different times when Wyeth lived and worked there. The atmosphere and palette of the the larger studio space is much the same as his paintings - austere, cool and spare.
Sources for painting around the studio include
- the Brandywine River and its valleys
- the farms and the countryside around Chadds Ford.
- Karl and Anna Kuerner's farm can be found about one mile from his parents' home in Chadds Ford.
The white clapboard that houses Andrew Wyeth's studio at Chadd's Ford used to be an old schoolhouse. It was built in 1875 as part of the Chadds Ford School District and lies just off Creek Road, south of U.S. 1. His father NC Wyeth bought it in 1925. It also served as a home for Andrew Wyeth until 1961.
Andrew Wyeth valued his privacy and there is a sign on his Studio Door which reads "I am working so please do not disturb." Plus - just in case visitors did not get the point "I do not sign autographs"!

This book is written by Betsy Wyeth, his wife, who explains how he works and contains 370 reproductions, 315 of which have never been reproduced before.
"In the 1980s, Mr. Wyeth was the subject of an intense media spotlight for his "Helga" series of 45 paintings and 200 sketches. These pictures, many of them nudes, were the product of hundreds of modeling sessions with a Chadds Ford neighbor, Helga Testorf, over a 15-year period. No one else, not even Mr. Wyeth's wife, had previously known about them, and their disclosure to the public was arguably the art event of the decade."— 'Washington Post' 16th January 2009
