Jamie Wyeth is the grandson of N. C. Wyeth, the illustrator of the classic Treasure Island, and the son of Andrew Wyeth, another distinguished painter. Not only were his father and grandfather famous painters, but Carolyn Wyeth and Henriette (Wyeth) Hurd, two of his aunts, and his uncles John McCoy and Peter Hurd were also painters. Jamie’s pictures even rival those of his father and grandfather.
Unlike many artists who go to the island of Monhegan, Jamie Wyeth paints with his “back to the sea.” He chooses to concentrate his attention on people and man-made landmarks rather than epic seascapes. Led by Amanda C. Burdan, this talk will focus on Wyeth’s subject matter on Monhegan.
This gallery talk will be held at the Brandywine River Museum and is free for members and included in museum admission.
