Andrew Wyeth

Wyeth is an American painter whose work has been enormously popular and critically acclaimed since his first one-man show in 1937. His principal subjects are the people of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, and Cushing, Maine, portrayed in a meticulous naturalistic style. The best-known of Wyeth's paintings, Christina's World (1948), hangs at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. What are his "Helga" pictures, and why did they generate a considerable amount of media buzz? More...

The Dilemma of Christina's World
The frequent routine uphill crawl by Christina Oslon should have definitely resulted in hypertrophy of upper limb muscles but the image depicts marasmic upper limbs. On the contrary the gluteal muscles seem well developed despite the effects of Polio.

Andrew Wyeth "Wind from the Sea", 1947 tempera on hardboard overall


Wyeth gave America a prim and flinty view of Puritan rectitude, starchily sentimental, through parched gray and brown pictures of spooky frame houses, desiccated fields, deserted beaches, circling buzzards and craggy-faced New Englanders. A virtual Rorschach test for American culture during the better part of the last century, Wyeth split public opinion as vigorously as, and probably even more so than, any other American painter including the other modern Andy, Warhol, whose milieu was as urban as Wyeth’s was rural.

Because of his popularity, a bad sign to many art world insiders, Wyeth came to represent middle-class values and ideals that modernism claimed to reject, so that arguments about his work extended beyond painting to societal splits along class, geographical and educational lines. One art historian, in response to a 1977 survey in Art News magazine about the most underrated and overrated artists of the century, nominated Wyeth for both categories.
