Andrew Wyeth: Looking Beyond
March 24 – July 22, 2012
Andrew Wyeth: Looking Beyond explored the work of one of the most celebrated modern American artists. This highly focused exhibition was inspired by the three paintings in the museum’s collection: Northern Point, 1950; April Wind, 1952; and Chambered Nautilus, 1956; each defined by a distinct use of perspective. Wyeth’s use of windows and open doors to invite viewers to look into a distant realm—be it emotional or physical. Included among the 15-20 works were important loans from public and private collections, including rarely seen preparatory studies in pencil and watercolor.
