We lost one of our heros today. Andrew Wyeth.
Well God bless him, he was 91 and died in his sleep. If you're gonna go, not a bad way to do it. Here's to Andrew.
Too bad sorry to hear it thats a pretty stunning picture you could almost forget about the background detail and focus on the girl she's painted so well but the whole thing looks great.
I can draw a bit mailman not as good as your work though i think you should really be on miami ink lol but i wouldnt say im a arty person i can aprechiate good work though.
He was one of the greats. His art was text book masterpiece. They always told a story. However the story was personal to the viewer. Nothing was left to "force feeding" a concept. It was all in the imagination of the gazer.
I mean what was Christina thinking about? Why was she there? Where is she? Who is she? Pure magic.
I bet the work will be worth even more now
It was damn near priceless already. No one should "own" it anyway now. The owner is gone. Let the world have it.
i agree m8 he would want it for all to see they are amazing reminds me alot of my childhood spent alot of time in the country hunting with my dog
See thats what I'm talking about. For me I think of a girl I once knew/loved. Well as much as you can love at 10 years old who died. Her home was "rough" to say the least and she was always around looking for someone to play with.
This is why I love Wyeth work. He gave us the pictures to our own stories. Rockwell is my favorite however. But Wyeth I think was "deeper" than Rockwell.
Im not an art person but i do know this painting. (One with the girl) I think its amazing, and im glad he didnt have to suffer.
makes you think also whats over the hill??? its truly a fine peice of work.
pretty cool panting. make me think of the cordon in stalker.
One can almost imagine these pics being opposite sides of the same hill perhaps from a different angle and different season. (?) What do you guys think?
Not for me. One is mid-west and the other one has a european feel to it. The light is also warmer in the Christina painting. The boy is diffidently not American.
Never heard of him before, nor have I seen the paintings, but may he rest in peace. I appreciate art, it takes a lot of skill and heart, and both them paintings are beautiful. Glad he went with no pain.
You never saw "Christina's world"? Wow man you have been deprived or just are not an art fan.
TBH, I've never heard of him nor have I seen that picture either... But may he R.I.P.
I guess art lovers are not as many as I thought.
