Timothy Standring discusses the studio practices of Andrew and Jamie Wyeth, for whom inspiration came in a flash. They would then seek to bring the fleeting idea to visible form. Imagination, memory, and experience were channeled through their dazzling technical abilities. Such were the methods behind the two Andrew Wyeth paintings at the NCMA, Winter 1946 and Sea Dog. Dr. Standring is Gates Foundation Curator, Painting and Sculpture, at the Denver Art Museum.
Reception follows the lecture.
