The N. C. Wyeth catalogue raisonné records almost 2,000 paintings Wyeth created in a career that spanned five decades. The detailed catalogue entries were informed by a great variety of sources, including the artist’s correspondence, archival material in private and public collections, and hundreds of objects that remain in Wyeth’s studio and home. Christine Podmaniczky will describe the catalogue project and review aspects of Wyeth’s career through a selection of paintings with fascinating stories and documentation.

Wyeth House and Studio, the Andrew Wyeth Studio, and the Kuerner Farm. She is the author of N. C. Wyeth, Catalogue Raisonné of Paintings, and curated Every Picture Tells a Story, Illustrations by N. C. Wyeth from the Brandywine River Museum currently on view at the Wyeth Center.
