Andrew Wyeth: Looking Beyond
Erin Monroe, assistant curator, Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art
Explore the poignant imagery and masterful technique of Andrew Wyeth, one of the twentieth century’s most celebrated artists. Hear how Wyeth infused everyday objects and places with highly personal meaning, from a weathered seashell to an open window. In addition, by comparing preparatory studies to their finished paintings, Wyeth’s creative process will be examined. Finally, Monroe will “look beyond” previously held assumptions about Wyeth’s work and suggest fresh interpretations that position him a larger historical and artistic framework.
