Andrew Wyeth: Lines of Thought

Brandywine River Museum of Art / September 20, 2014 - February 8, 2015 / Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania


Over his remarkable seven-decade career, Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009) created thousands of drawings in graphite and watercolor, a body of work that he rarely exhibited. The drawings in this exhibition provide a fascinating glimpse into his creative process. They were created by Wyeth in preparation for four paintings— Faraway (1952), Corner of the Woods (1954), Roasted Chestnuts (1956), and Garret Room (1962). Each drawing is part of the process Wyeth used to work out his vision for his paintings. Many were sketched outdoors and reveal Wyeth’s immediate response to figures or objects in a composition. The exhibition includes 23 drawings and three paintings. IMAGE: ©Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009), Roasted Chestnuts (1956), tempera on panel.
