Andrew Wyeth was probably America's best-known living artist of the 20th century. His paintings are enormously popular but his achievement is controversial. Over his long career, he has mostly stood apart - sporadically celebrated, often taken for granted, sometimes ignored, seldom studied in depth. AS OF 2002, it has been more than three decades since Wyeth's huge body of work received concentrated scholarly attention. As the artist approached his ninth decade, it was time to consider this master's work anew. Andrew Wyeth: Memory & Magic looks at the sweep of Wyeth's entire career, seeking patterns, echoes, elaborations, shifts, epiphanies. Anne Classen Knutson studies Wyeth's relationship to things, the symbolism of places and objects, and scenes that Wyeth had painted over and over for decades. This book contains more than 150 Wyeth paintings, watercolors, and drawings.
