Andrew Wyeth, Free Poster
~ art critic Robert Rosenblum: nominated Andrew Wyeth as the most underrated and overrated artist of the 20th Century,
~ the Wyeth family maintained its central home in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania with a summer home in Cushing, Maine.
~ Wyeth’s paintings are set in and around the locales of these two homes.
~ labelled a regionalist for painting local people and surroundings.
~ also deemed a magic realist, especially for his masterpiece "Christina’s World" (such art work hides a critical aspect and in that painting it was that Christina was handicapped). He was never an abstract artist.
~ was never a starving artist because the public immediately connected with and “got” his work.
~ the critics gave him a hard time, saying that his work was more illustration than painting and that he wasn’t sufficiently innovative or daring.
~ his famous father, N.C. Wyeth, had been an illustrator so the critics knew calling him an illustrator was a low blow.
~ the defining motivation for Andrew Wyeth’s art work was the controversial death of his father. It galvanized him to develop a whole body of painting work and he never looked back.
~ one day his father drove his car onto the local railroad tracks. He had his 3 year old grandchild in the car with him. a train collided with the car, killing both instantly.
~ some claimed that the transmission on his car must have failed but others said that it was suicide because his grandchild was really his child (with his daughter-in-law). The truth of the matter is unknown. DNA tests did not exist then so paternity could also not be definitively tested.
