Andrew Wyeth: Autobiographyby Andrew Wyeth, Thomas Hoving
This comprehensive survey is a look back at six decades of paintings by America's favorite artist. With 138 reproductions, including many seminal paintings from both his Chadds Ford and Maine work, this is the crowning book of Andrew Wyeth's career. But what makes Andrew Wyeth: Autobiography truly extraordinary are Wyeth's comments about each painting--an "autobiography," told through conversations with Thomas Hoving--which offer fascinating, often unexpected facts about Wyeth's life and art.

As a student of watercolor, this book was so inspiring. I doubt I will ever be anywhere near his accomplished images. The subtleness required is so predominant in his paintings. This book made me want to seek out the "real" pieces to gaze at in person. The book was actually on sale at a very reduced price and worth it's original price and more.
