Andrew Wyeth : Memory and Magic Hardback
While striving for a comprehensiveness that is appropriate to the breadth and scope of Wyeth's prolific oeuvre, "Andrew Wyeth: Memory & Magic" will focus on the artist's ongoing love affair with everyday things - domestic, natural and architectural.
Found throughout Wyeth's portraits, landscapes and domestic interiors, these objects form patterns that illuminate core themes and reveal the artist wrestling with issues of memory, temporality, embodiment, and the metaphysical.
The book will include a number of portraits, which will introduce readers to the people associated with these painted things and places. Organized chronologically and thematically, this book will explore how the artist's approach to these subjects was formed in his early career, became distinct in his middle period, and has been revisited in new and surprising ways in recent years.
