Reassessing the Art of Andrew Wyeth

 John Wilmerding

Sarofim Professor of American Art, Emeritus at Princeton University

Like Winslow Homer and Thomas Eakins before him—and Hopper, Pollock, and Franz Kline after him—Andrew Wyeth sought to express feelings and personality in his art. Wilmerding looks at ways Wyeth used intensely observed everyday things (such as the boots in the DIA’s Sea Boots), framing devices (windows, doors, etc. ), and unexpected angles of vision to express psychologically complex states and emotions.
