Top Ten Paintings by Andrew Wyeth

Top Ten Paintings by Andrew Wyeth

       Andrew Newell Wyeth was born on July 12, 1917. The youngest of five children of Newell Convers and Carolyn Bockius Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth was home-tutored and learned art from his father. In 1937 at age twenty, he had his first one-man exhibition of watercolors at Macbeth Gallery in New York City. The entire inventory of paintings quickly sold out, and Wyeth’s career was launched. In October 1945 Andrew Wyeth’s father and his three-year-old grandson were killed when their car stalled on railroad tracks near their home and was struck by a train. Wyeth has referred to his father’s death as a formative emotional event in his artistic career, in addition to a personal tragedy. It was shortly after this time that Wyeth’s art consolidated into his mature and enduring style, characterized by a subdued color palette, highly realistic renderings, and the depiction of emotionally charged symbolic objects.
