內容簡介


美國最具代表性的寫實主義畫家之一Andrew Wyeth最重要的50幅畫作,隨書附上的導論,介紹了這個深受喜愛的藝術家永不褪色的傑作。

2017年恰巧是Andrew Wyeth百年冥誕,這本美麗精巧的圖畫冊,將畫家橫跨70年的創作生涯中,最重要的作品集結在一起。他筆下貧脊的鄉村生活已成為美國文化的重要象徵,並且引發了現代藝術本質的無盡辯論(《紐約時報》語)。他所創作的風景畫與人物畫,來自他所居住的賓州小鎮Chadds Ford,與他夏日避暑的緬因州。幾乎他所有重要的作品皆創作在他位於Chadds Ford的畫室,現在這個畫室已成為布蘭迪萬河(Brandywine River)美術館的一部份,自美術館於1971年成立以來,Wyeth與該館的關係即非常密切。

本書簡短的序論,介紹了畫家的生平,收錄的近50幅重要畫作,包括了:

賓州風景(1942年)
來自海邊的風(1947年)
克莉絲緹娜的世界(1948年)
被踩踏的雜草(主要畫面是畫家大腿以下的自畫像)(1951年)
烤核桃(1947)
麻花辮(Braids)(1977年)
聖靈降臨日(Pantecost)(1989年)

還有之前未曾公開面世的:
Betsy的海邊(2006年)
烏鴉樹(Crow Tree)(2007年)


The major paintings of iconic American artist Andrew Wyeth (1917–2009) presented together in an accessible volume.

 
Andrew Wyeth is an essential introduction to the enduring masterworks of this profoundly popular American artist.
 
Published on the occasion of the centennial of the artist’s birth, this handsome book highlights works spanning the entirety of the artist’s seven-decade career painting the landscapes and people he knew in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, where he lived, and in Maine, where he summered. Many of his most important landscapes and portraits were created in and around his Chadds Ford studio, now part of the Brandywine River Museum of Art, with which Andrew Wyeth was intimately connected since its founding in 1971. A short introduction provides an overview of his life, and descriptive captions contextualize some fifty of the artist’s finest and most beloved paintings, including Pennsylvania Landscape (1942), Wind from the Sea (1947), Christina’s World (1948), Trodden Weed (1951), Roasted Chestnuts (1956), Braids (1977), and Pentecost (1989). Readers will also be treated to works previously unseen, such as Betsy’s Beach (2006) and Crow Tree (2007).
