The Denver Art Museum’s latest exhibition and catalogue celebrate two of America’s most beloved painters: father and son artists Andrew Wyeth (1917–2009) and Jamie Wyeth (born 1946). Wyeth: Andrew and Jamie in the Studio explores the connection between these two artists by examining their working methods and processes and comparing their works side by side. In the catalogue’s essay, Timothy Standring, Curator of Painting and Sculpture at DAM, chronicles his many visits to the artists’ studios in the Brandywine Valley and rural Maine. These visits provide a glimpse into the personal lives of the Wyeths and provide a context for their shared oeuvre.
In addition to Standring’s essay, the book also includes an extensive plate section of paintings, drawings, and sketches; a detailed timeline; and an illustrated checklist.
