Join Patricia Junker, Ann M. Barwick Curator of American Art, for an in-gallery talk exploring the themes of Andrew Wyeth: In Retrospect.
Andrew Wyeth: In Retrospect follows the evolution of one of America’s most famous painters by bringing together well-known and rarely seen works. From depictions of his life in Chadds Ford, PA, to the coastal villages of Maine, Wyeth created timeless images of places, people, and things—layered with acute observation and a boundless imagination—all imbued with the artist’s mysterious temperament. Often out of synch with the time, Wyeth’s art challenged the norms of realism and abstraction.
Free with museum admission.
