I went to the Andrew Wyeth exhibit at the National Art Gallery in DC and absolutely loved his work. Looked at some of these books at the museum and they wanted some outrageous amount. Great photos in here as well as dialog to go along with them.

I went to the Andrew Wyeth exhibit at the National Art Gallery in DC and absolutely loved his work. Photos could probably be a little more HD but I like it none-the-less.

Some works never before reproduced in color

Some works never before reproduced in color. Wanda Corn organized the major Wyeth show in San Francisco in 1973; O'Doherty is a noted critic, writer and painter; Meryman, author of Andrew Wyether (1968) is known for his perceptives with artists; Richardson has been director of the Detroit Institute of Fine Arts, the Winterthur Museum, and the Archives of American Art.

Wanda M. Corn completes the book by way of an analysis of sorts presenting Wyeth's unique style and character within place and time.

I bought it back in the 1970s (it may no longer be in print), but I felt like it was timeless enough to still have current value. Wanda M. She helps us to see inside Wyeth, his roots, understanding and meaning of art; thus drawing out the allure and poetic charm of his paintings as well as a window into the depth and mystery that is intrinsic to his person.

This book of Wyeth's artwork does have color pictures and no nudes, for which I am grateful. It includes background material, including a lengthy section on his painstaking technique, and an interview

This book of Wyeth's artwork does have color pictures and no nudes, for which I am grateful. He does some masterful studies of people with character. The places he paints aren't showcases of the rich and famous but point out the beauty in simple things of life. He seemed to be drawn to dark scenes  . It includes background material, including a lengthy section on his painstaking technique, and an interview. That's not why I came.

Moving away from issues of style and abstraction, she bases her work on a broad examination of culture and on discourses of national identity.

David Cateforis, Wanda M. Corn, Alexander Nemerov. Andrew Wyeth is one of the best loved and most widely recognized artists in American history, yet for much of his career he was reviled by the art world's critical elite.

This is a lovely book which includes many of Wyeth's pictures. Part of me wants to say the pictures enhance the text but, in spite of the interesting and well-written text, for me the book IS the art. (Wish I could include the work on the cover: Wind from the Sea. Incredible.)

Following the Preface there are four primary sections: A Visit to Wyeth Country by Brian O'Doherty; Andrew Wyeth: An Interview by Richard Meryman; Andrew Wyeth's Painting Techniques by E.P. Richardson and The Art of Andrew Wyeth by Wand M. Corn.

In the Interview, the artist is blunt. Quotes: "Talking art bores me and I hate to get caught painting...I have such a strong romantic fantasy about things-and that's what I paint, but come to it through realism...If you don't back up your dreams with truth, you have a very round-shouldered art...You see, I don't say, 'Well, now I'm going to go out and find something to paint'. To h*** with that...."

The section on techniques presents, with some quotes, Wyeth's movement from traditional watercolor to his dry brush technique. It goes on to describe his works (my favorites) done in egg tempura: "The medium for his most sustained and controlled statements is egg tempura, used on gesso panels just as it was used when Cennino Cennini wrot his description of the technique in fourteenth-century Florence."

Awfully glad I bought this book. The seller was a Goodwill store in Florida. We both "won" on this transaction.
It's so easy
I'm speechless as I try to write this review. I learned so much about the artist and his paintings. I don't know where to begin. Looking through this book was like walking through a haunted house. I was almost afraid to turn the next page because I knew I would be startled by the stark reality of life that he captured in every brush stroke. If you have ever wanted to dig deeper into the life and mind of Andrew Wyeth this is a good place to start.

I purchased this book because I remember enjoying it when I saw it many years ago. It isn't a bad book, but printing technology has moved on that a book with more vibrant reproductions might be better for most viewers today. Still it is a good collection of Wyeth's work.

Love this book. Not only does it show how beautiful his art is, but the interview of him, his own words are wonderful. Nice to hear about his venerability, his feelings about his paintings, not always being satisfied, other artist can relate, but we don't see his dissatisfaction. His recreation of the landscape and people he saw in his own eyes, I could only wish I had this natural creativity. Would love to have met this gentleman. Enjoyed this book very much!

Sure there are much better reproductions of these Wyeth paintings out there, but if you have not purchased this book of 1973 essays do it now for a real treat. Sure everyone is waiting for the catalog raisone, but while you are waiting take a trip into the past with:

A Visit to Wyeth Country by Brian O'Doherty

Andrew Wyeth Interview by Richard Meryman

Andrew Wyeth's Painting Techniques by E.P. Richardson

The Art of Andrew Wyeth by Wanda M. Corn

Sure I bought all the good books first and passed this one over, but at the price it is selling today I'd really recommend these essays to you. Some of us can never get enough Wyeth, and this is good stuff.

4 stars for the reproductions. The text is 5 stars all the way.

Such fine lines and composition rarely seen.
A nice single work on Wyeth. Contains a very important interview with Wyeth's biographer Meryman, that outlines Wyeth's thinking on his working method. This is a gem of interest to any working artist.
