Wyeth January 17 through April 5 at the Brandywine Museum
Featuring 109 works, Jamie Wyeth examines six decades of the artist’s career and charts the evolution of his creative process from his earliest childhood drawings through recurring themes inspired by the people, places and objects that populate his world. The exhibition incorporates paintings, works on paper, illustrations and two recent sculptural works.
The exhibition offers a sense of the artist’s development over 60 years, from portraits made during his time in New York to landscapes of the worlds he inhabits in Chadds Ford and Maine. Wyeth’s family context is explored with works including his childhood drawings and earliest portraits—created in his father’s and grandfather’s studios, where he worked under the tutelage of his aunt Carolyn.
