Andrew Wyeth Prints
Andrew Wyeth prints capture and invigorate the senses as this artist satisfies the popular notion that art should be faithful to nature. He has been referred to as "the people's artist" having without a doubt the largest number of admirers of any artist alive today.
Wyeth is well known for his interpretations of the austere rural landscapes of Pennsylvania and Maine and the people who live there. Based on his contribution to American realism he is deemed to be one of the most celebrated living artists of all time.
Many Andrew Wyeth prints are endearing reflections of American history. The charming abandoned farmhouses along with many of his other rural themes painted mainly in watercolours and tempera, are a part of the nostalgia associated with pre-World War II America.
"The Helga Pictures," composed secretly over a fifteen year period reflect his dedication to the effects of light on the human body. He painted Helga in many different ways; at every time of day and night, indoors and outdoors, clothed as well as nude. Helga's physical changes throughout the fifteen years along with Wyeth's growth as an artist are what make the collection so interesting. We really get to see the changes and advances he gained during the years while he used Helga as a subject.
"When I was a kid and the rest were going to school, I was getting educated wandering through the cornfields and the woods." - Andrew Wyeth
