Too easily pegged as a realist painter working in the academic tradition, Andrew Wyeth was in truth anything but a conventional artist. He constantly pushed painting beyond mere representation and has occupied a place between tradition and the artistic vanguard. Patricia Junker, the Ann M. Barwick Curator of American Art, reveals the artist's rebellious character and focuses our attention on the unconventional realist paintings in Andrew Wyeth: Remembrance.
Bringing together some of the most compelling thinkers on a given cultural subject, Pivotal Perspectives is a timely and innovative forum that addresses pressing issues in art and society.
