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.
