Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009), "Barracoon", 1976, Drybrush on paper, 19 3/4 x 25 1/8 in.


Heather James Fine Art / November 26, 2011 - January 31, 2012 / Palm Desert, California


A seminal exhibition of the work of Andrew Wyeth opens at Heather James Fine Art, Palm Desert, CA on November 26, 2011. Titled “Wyeth,” the exhibition is a survey of the legendary American artist and includes wonderful temperas, dry brushes and watercolors. In addition, on exhibit will be excellent examples of art by his father N.C. Wyeth, and his son James Wyeth. As an artist, Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009) was deeply interested in the notion of survival in the face of hostile elements, historical change, and natural decay. Only his uniquely American relationship with the environment, its vast natural beauty and introspective quietude could have given fruit to Christina’s World, the artist’s greatest oeuvre and America’s greatest mid-century representational painting. Another great achievement is the artist’s so-called “Helga Pictures,” a series depicting the model Helga Testorf, which Wyeth secretly executed over the course of 15 years. Many of these watercolors and dry brushes, amongst Wyeth’s best works on paper, will be on view at Heather James Fine Art.
