ANDREW WYETH, 1917-2009
Andrew Wyeth, son of N.C. Wyeth. Under his father’s guidance he started drawing at a young age. He mastered figure study and watercolor before exploring egg tempera—which quickly became one of his favorite mediums. At age 20 Andrew held his first one-man exhibition of watercolors at the Macbeth Gallery in New York City. The show sold out. Andrew divided his time between Maine and Pennsylvania painting his favorite subjects—the land and people that surrounded him.
