I love to study the many things that grow below the corn stalks and bring them back to the studio to study the color. If one could only catch that true color of nature – the very thought of it drives me mad. - Andrew Wyeth
Andrew Wyeth, a visual artist, primarily a realist painter, working predominantly in a regionalist style, was one of the best-known American artists of the middle 20th century.
Wyeth's work that so represented rural middle-class values and ethics around him, both in his hometown of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, and at his summer home in Cushing, Maine most always spoke volumes to those who clamoured to his exhibitions. Captured in his artwork was the essence of pictorial beauty, abstraction and symbolic content. Andrew's art also co-existed peaceably with illustrators like Norman Rockwell, Wyeth's own father, N.C. Wyeth and landscape painters like Winslow Homer.
