Chadds Ford is, of course, where Andrew Wyeth drew inspiration for his work, and the Brandywine River Museum is home to an unparalleled collection representing the artist’s 75-year career.
Before he painted his masterpieces, many of which capture the Brandywine countryside, he did studies in pencil and watercolor, exploring form, color and mood. This exhibit incorporates some of those rarely seen studies, on loan from the Andrew and Betsy Wyeth Foundation.
Through January 16, visitors also can enjoy Jamie Wyeth’s illustrations for the recently published children’s book Sammy in the Sky.
The museum is also home to works by other members of the Wyeth family, as well as the work of other American artists.
