The exhibit will include approximately forty works of various media including drawings, watercolors, works in dry brush and tempera. The exhibit will span the breadth of Andrew Wyeth’s career and feature a wide range of subject matter including landscapes of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania and the rural coast of Maine, figural works, studies and fully executed masterworks.Highlights of the show include The Lovers, loaned directly from the studio of Andrew Wyeth will be exhibited for the first time, Erickson, the highest priced paid for a Wyeth work, and Faraway, one of Wyeth’s first dry-brush paintings which features the artist’s son, Jamie Wyeth as a young boy.In the 1980s, the works of Andrew Wyeth could already be seen in a variety of art publications in China. Wyeth’s works demonstrate the self-consciousness, calmness and solitudes of an individual mind with a stroke of stability, tranquility and desolation. The unique style and quality in his works opened a door for Chinese artists, who were just getting to see the world of art at the time, and left influences in their un-established style and personalities. Through imitation and interpretation, they paid tribute to the master with their own works.
