Wyeth Cubed, or 3 masters & one family...




Three generations of talent in one family. And the impact of their geography and climate similarly on each painter's art. There is a book of Jaimie's work called "Wonderous Strange" that I strongly encourage anyone who loves art to check out from their library.
I learn much about atmospherics from all three Wyeths'. Their time and place weighs so heavily in all of their work.
When I look at the work of all three together, it is really amazing to see the almagamation of fantasy and bleak painterly skill in the grandson.
Who is your Favorite Wyeth? And which painting touches you most?

“I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape - the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show.” -Andrew Wyeth
“I think one's art goes as far and as deep as one's love goes.”- Andrew Wyeth
