A tribute to a courageous woman, as well as the unspoiled beauty of her surroundings, “Christina’s World” is Andrew Wyeth’s most famous painting. A representational watercolorist whose neutral-toned, nuanced work depicted rural America’s rustic beauty, Wyeth painted “Christina’s World” in homage to his neighbor, Christina Olson, who was dragging herself toward her house despite crippling polio. Wyeth (1917-2009), moved by her determination, painted her and her house in numerous works.
Called “the painter of the people,” popular American realist Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009) deeply sympathized with humanity and its struggles. Schooled in painting by his artistic father, Wyeth held his first one-man exhibition at age 20. After his father’s untimely death at a railroad crossing, Wyeth’s signature, subdued style emerged, infused with symbolism and high realism. Generating controversy when it conflicted with 20th century abstractionism, his realistic art was still widely published, and was featured at the first one-man White House exhibition.

          I have loved this painting from the first time I ever saw it, way back in high school. I had a piece hanging in my bathroom that I did not particularly like anymore, and thought that replacing it with this painting that I love so much would be perfect. I am so glad I did - now it is a joy each and every time I see my new art in that room.
