regionalist style


Andrew Newell Wyeth : July 12, 1917 – January 16, 2009, was a visual artist, primarily a realist painter, working predominantly in a regionalist style. 

He was one of the best-known U.S. artists of the middle 20th century.  

In his art, Wyeth’s favorite subjects were the land & people around him, both in his hometown of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, & at his summer home in Cushing, Maine

Wyeth often noted: “I paint my life.” 

One of the best-known images in 20th-century American art is his painting Christina’s World, currently in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City

This tempera was painted in 1948, when Wyeth was 31 years old.
