Andrew Wyeth, Goodbye, 2008
“The Foundation’s collection is both equally wide and deep—and the vast majority of the works have never ever been exhibited publicly. Among the the strange elements are 70 of Wyeth’s oil paintings—very unusual functions, principally from the 1930s, when he experimented with the medium before adopting tempera and watercolor as his favored mediums. These paintings—such as Fox Grass Below Adams (1934), at this time on perspective at the Brandywine—reflect common themes, yet their design and strategy display his evolution as an artist over his overall profession. Wyeth is ideal regarded for his tempera paintings, 48 of which are in the selection, together with his 1966 tribute to his spouse Betsy, titled Maga’s Daughter Black Hunter (1938), an rare example of an early tempera and Wyeth’s past key portray, Goodbye (2008), which has rarely been noticed publicly. The assortment attributes more than 2,000 of Wyeth’s watercolors, for which he is renown—many rendered applying the “dry brush” procedure.”
Many thanks, Susan M.
