Rapping About a World at Risk

Andrew Wyeth Passes

Day Dream
1980

We mourn the death of the American Realist artist Andrew Wyeth who has passed away at the age of 91.

Wyeth was famous for his renderings of interior still life’s and sparse landscapes of rural Pennsylvania countryside. Wyeth is also well known for the Helga series of paintings. I’ll always remember Wyeth’s painting “Master Bedroom” because a good friend hung a print rendering in their dining room after Mo their beloved White Lab passed away.

Wyeth was an important American artist who enjoyed considerable commercial success due to his popular and accessible style. Mr. Wyeth’s style seemed to convey the psychological stasis of post WW2 America.

The cannon of American art was richer due to his contributions.

God speed Mr. Wyeth.
