Andrew Wyeth's studio and first TV interview

This is an update on information about Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009).

I'm an inveterate tracker down of artists' studios.  I've found time and again that actually finding the place where an artist was based enables you to understand more about the artwork they produce.
  • Yesterday I updated About Andrew Wyeth - American Artist with a new section devoted to Wyeth's studio at Chadd's Ford.  This was donated by his wife to the Brandywine Museum at Chadd's Ford and they have renovated the house and studios that he used for many decades. 
  • In looking for links about the studio, I stumbled across Andrew Wyeth's first ever (and for all I know only) network television interview.  In this he talks about the 'Helga' paintings and his wife Betsy's critique of his paintings.

  • This summer the Wyeth House and Studio was reopened to the public and the new section Andrew Wyeth's Studio contains links to how you can visit the studio and comments - and videos and photos by those who have.

    2. I thought so - and it made complete sense of the Helga paintings!

    COMMENTS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED

    There are lots of very silly people who don't understand that Google is not stupid and that links posted to a Blogger comment are:
    * NOT LIVE and
    * CARRY NO LINK JUICE.
    They continue to post spam comments - despite this blog using both word verification and moderation that states very clearly that no spam will be published.

    So I've SUSPENDED COMMENTING BY EVERYBODY but me. This allows past comments to still be seen.

    Feel free to comment on my Facebook Page when my blog posts are posted there
