I happened to be in Denver this January and was fortunate to have visited the new exhibition: at the Denver Art Museum: “Wyeth, Andrew and Jamie in the Studio” curated by Timothy J. Standring of the Denver Art Museum Staff through Febuary 7, 2016. Standring's interpretation is: “It’s so off the wall, serious, and yet playful with all the different colors and shapes,” he said. “The effect is quite dizzying actually. It’s fabulous.” I have to agree, although those are not the sentiments I might have expected before visiting the show. Andrew Wyeth is primarily known as a realist painter, so well known for the girl sprawled on the grounds of the Cushing House in “Christina's World” from 1948. At a time when abstract expressionism by Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Robert Motherwell, Mark Rothko and Clyfford Still, to name a few, were stealing the critics headlines, Andrew Wyeth was winning the admiration of legions of art lovers worldwide with his representations of the land and people around him, both in his hometown of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, and at his summer home in Cushing, Maine. Wyeth often noted: “I paint my life.” Despite immense popularity, critical assessments of both his art and legacy remained mixed during his lifetime but the abstract pendulum has continued to move and the representational subjects so loved by Wyeth have gained new respect as exemplified in this new exhibition at the Denver Art Museum. As an aside, it is the art of Jamie Wyeth that really steals this show.
