Andrew Wyeth

Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009) one of the most popular american painters of the twentieth century. His spare watercolours often evoke a spiritual connection to rural landscapes that strike a chord with many. His interior views seem weather dependant and unsheltered. Steadfast to his craft to the end he was criticised by some for an illustrative approach but by the end of his life he had become very wealthy and there is a cutting honesty to his view of a rural homestead from the comfort of his private jet.
