Today marks the birthday of Andrew Newell Wyeth (1917). Andrew was the youngest of five children of the artist/illustrator Newell Convers Wyeth. Andrew’s own son, Jamie, has even taken up painting as a profession to provide for a third Wyeth generation in the art scene. Andrew, considered a realist painter, was one of the best-known U.S. artists of the middle 20th century. Christina’s World, Wyeth’s most famous painting by far, depicts Christina Olson, on the Olson farm in Maine (near the Wyeth summer home).
