Hadlock and Wyeth Study Center Galleries
This exhibition, which includes works that have never been on display at the Farnsworth, spans the artist’s entire career, with some of his earliest works as well as some of his most recent. Included are watercolor, drybrush as well as tempera paintings.
The Farnsworth Art Museum has had a long-standing relationship with Andrew Wyeth. It was in 1944, four years before the Farnsworth even opened, that the museum purchased watercolors by the emerging young artist. In 1951, the museum, in collaboration with the Currier Gallery (now the Currier Museum of Art) in Manchester, New Hampshire, mounted Andrew Wyeth's first solo museum retrospective.
