Andrew Wyeth: Maine Watercolors, 1938 – 2008 features many of the painter’s most important watercolors of Maine spanning his entire career, from 1938 through 2008, including a study for his final work Goodbye my Love. The exhibition will be co-curated by Farnsworth Chief Curator Michael K. Komanecky and renowned American art scholar Henry Adams. 

The Farnsworth Art Museum presents a series of exhibitions to mark the centennial of Andrew Wyeth’s birth that will include over 100 of the artist’s works. Andrew Wyeth at 100 features a major retrospective exhibition of the American master’s Maine watercolors. Four other shows will explore his temperas and drawings while a photography exhibition will focus on the Olson House, a major inspiration to the artist for three decades. This year-long celebration will be on display throughout the museum’s Wyeth Center, as well as its Hadlock and Wyeth Study Center galleries.

The catalog for all five Wyeth at 100 exhibitions is available here.
