We were so fortunate here at the Denver Art Museum to host, display Andrew and Jamie Wyeths art and words. To have father (Andrew) and son (Jamie) side by side figuratively was a visual pleasure. I included a few samples here, but difficult to show the whole scope of the exhibit. The photos are from my IPhone, not perfectly placed, but allowed at the museum (no flash please). The first is a portrait by Jamie of a woman physician, (sorry did not take notes). She loved it, others did not. But it shows her life in every line I think, the difficulties going through med school years ago, but determination in every line. The second is a quote by Andrew.
This is a photo of a bait box from which Jamie paints sometimes, you can see the ocean beyond. He does not like people watching him so he uses this
This is Clayberg, Jamie's Lab who displays a dashing eye patch of sorts, painted by Jamie with moustache paint. Jamie retouched it every week.
Painting on the right is called Sycamore Tree and Hunter by Andrew Wyeth.
Love their work so much.ReplyDelete
Me too. The You Tube videos are perfect...have a cup of coffee and watch the Wyeth family.Delete
Jamie seems to have been a bit of an eccentric. Maybe the whole family were!ReplyDelete
I think that all artists are, their art drives them to be rather single-minded and driven.Delete
Hi Nat - loved seeing these and then I've spent a shortish while looking round at Wiki and at Youtube for some more info ..ReplyDelete
Isn't the quote wonderful, while the bait box - must have frustrated many. Sad it looks like that line has died out .. though Victoria Browning Wyeth is Jamie's niece - I see.
They are an interesting family - with all those connections and then being able to produce art works on them, and the homes and animals around .. fascinating - thank you .. cheers Hilary
Ah, artists, but the Wyeths are unique. I do understand the bait box idea. I don't like people watch me paint or sketch either, makes me self-conscious.Delete
I like shots of interiors too, and really like image of the art studio. Thanks for sharing these with us. IMO, the portrait should show more of the person than just a pretty or handsome face. I have always liked studying faces and taking portrait photos. I love visiting art galleries and exhibitions, they inspire.ReplyDelete
My favorite too: art galleries and exhibitions, just looking at the paintings make those creative wheels in my mind start turning and giving me ideas as well.ReplyDelete
It's so much fun to go and see a really great exhibit. Thanks for sharing this.ReplyDelete
Clever artist with sharp eyes for the unusual!ReplyDelete
Susan, thank you for taking the time to comment. I have been remiss about my blog, but hope to do better. Have lots to write about, are you in the challenge?ReplyDelete
