Sinopsis: As famous, and sometimes famously controversial, as the three generations of Wyeth artists have been, the artistic vision of Jamie Wyeth (born 1946), considered separate from the context of his family, remains surprisingly little known. This retrospective, the first in more than 30 years, presents a full range of work from his earliest virtuoso portraits to his most current mysteriously symbolic seascapes. Jamie Wyeth's early exposure to painting in his father Andrew Wyeth's studio, his youthful immersion in Andy Warhol's Factory and the New York art scene of the 1970s, and his continuing dialogue with artists past and present combine with his artistic imagination to create an elusive, hybrid form of realism that ranges from sharply observed portraits of historical and cultural figures, to personified animals and animated landscapes, to a vision of an inferno set on Maine's Monhegan Island. By exploring the themes and subjects central to Jamie Wyeth's vision, the authors place him in the context of his own distinguished artistic heritage as well as the long tradition of American realist painting and its contemporary revival. The more than 100 paintings, works on paper and multimedia assemblages lavishly reproduced in this book invite us to explore the world of a prodigiously gifted, adamantly individualistic American artist.
Sinopsis: James Browning Wyeth was born in 1946, the youngest child of Andrew Wyeth (one of the best-known U.S. artists of the middle 20th century) and Betsy James Wyeth and the grandson of the famed illustrator N. C. Wyeth. At the age of twelve he began his formal art training with his aunt, Carolyn Wyeth, and two years later began instruction with his father, His first paintings appeared when he was seventeen, and he held his first major show at Knoedler's Gallery in New York before he had turned twenty. This book, whose publication was time to coincide with a major retrospective exhibit that was shown at thee important American museums, represents the first comprehensive publication of Jamie Wyeth's work. It contains many of his well-known portraits of such subjects as john F. Kennedy, Lincoln Kirstein, and Andrew Wyeth, along with some newer ones, notably Andy Warhol and Rudolf Nureyev, both of which are accompanied by revealing pre-studies. His animal portraits - including the famous one of his pig, Den Den - have extraordinary verve and variety, and even the woods and fields of Pennsylvania and the rocky shores of the Main coast take on specific personalities. Jamie Wyeth's work has an astonish power to attract the viewer immediately, but it sets up reverberations that linger on to haunt the mind long afterward.
