This exhibition features drawings and watercolors from the personal collection of Victoria Wyeth (Bates ’01), many of which have never before been exhibited. Works include portraits of family members and neighbors who have become well known as models for Andrew Wyeth, Maine and Pennsylvania landscapes, plus sketchbooks and preliminary studies for well-known paintings that provide insights into Andrew Wyeth’s working process.
The artworks 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.
