The Son: Andrew Wyeth, 1917-2009
Christina’s World is one of the most familiar American works of the 20th century and is currently on display at The Museum of Modern Art in New York.
The woman crawling through the tawny grass was the artist’s neighbor, Christina, who was crippled by polio. Wyeth said his challenge was to “do justice to her extraordinary conquest of a life which most would consider hopeless.”
The Grandson: Jamie Wyeth, born 1946
Having grown up with his famous grandfather’s images of knights and pirates, and his father’s poignant paintings, Jamie Wyeth was determined to go his own way.
Beyond the scenic seascapes, he has spent decades portraying a darker, more disturbing side of Maine that tourists rarely see…unlikely subjects painted with his distinctive vision of life in the raw.
Jamie Wyeth’s paintings are found in major museums in America.
