An American Master


One of the inimitable talents of the 20th century, Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009) was a painter who%26nbsp; redefined American art with his way with watercolor; he was also an unerring image-maker, the conjurer of Christina%26rsquo;s World and the stirring nudes of Helga. Now a rare exhibition at Meredith Long %26amp; Company brings to light a cache of works owned by the Wyeth family never before shown in one group. Spanning more than five decades, the watercolors and drawings date from 1940 into the artist%26rsquo;s later years. Subjects reveal Wyeth%26rsquo;s intimate connection to the land and his community, painted near his homes in Maine and Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania: landscapes including some haunting snow scenes, nudes highlighted by delicate renderings of Helga, figure studies and early marine views. December 5 %26ndash; January 19, at Meredith Long %26amp; Company; meredithlonggallery.com.
