Lecture and Gallery Talks by Victoria Browning Wyeth ’01


When

Saturday, September 24, 2011 @ 3:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Saturday, September 24 at 3:30 p.m. at the Olin Arts Center Concert Hall, followed by a reception.

Victoria Wyeth presents a lecture on the exhibition, “Andrew and Jamie Wyeth: Selections from the Private Collection of Victoria Browning Wyeth.”

Victoria Wyeth will speak on the artwork of her grandfather, Andrew Wyeth and her uncle, Jamie Wyeth, with a focus on the exhibition on view in the Museum of Art.

Artworks in the exhibition reflect the intimacy between members of one of America’s most prominent artist families, which is further explored by the inclusion of illustrated personal correspondence between Ms. Wyeth, her uncle and her grandfather. And like the exhibition, Wyeth’s lecture focuses on her personal insights and stories about Andrew and Jamie Wyeth.

Berkshire Eagle writer Ruth Haskins Bass ’55 tells of the scintillating tour of Wyeth paintings led by family scion Victoria Wyeth ’01 at the Brandywine River Museum.

“Family history is never better than when a lively member of the family has the ability to tell the inside stories with both verve and nerve,” writes Bass. “Victoria Wyeth is one of those people, a young woman who seems to delight in telling ‘all’ about her famous family of artists.”

As Bass notes, “Ordinarily, visitors have a tendency to wander about during formal gallery tours, partly to get a better look at a particular work and partly to pass the time until the tour moves on. Not on Victoria’s tour.”
