The Wyeths: an American Artistic Dynasty

Andrew Wyeth’s Christina’s World, 1948. MoMA collection.

Tuesday, October 26, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Virtual Program

The Wyeth family of artists is known for their somber realism and subtle storytelling. This program will explore the style of painting and illustration established by N.C. Wyeth in the early 1900s and passed on and re-interpreted by his children, primarily Andrew Wyeth, and his grandson Jamie Wyeth. Learn more about their favorite subjects, their influences and their enduring impact in the art world.
