Unknown Terrain: The Landscapes of Andrew Wyeth

Overview

This volume, which accompanies a landmark exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, is the first to focus exclusively on the exquisite landscape paintings and watercolors that Wyeth has been creating throughout his long career. Fluid, expressionistic, often breathtaking in their abstract beauty, these landscapes enable us to view Wyeth's work without the usual focus on narrative and anecdote. By revealing the art behind the story, they offer a fresh basis for ...

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Best known for his realistic portraits and figure painting, Andrew Wyeth's landscapes are a world apart. Abstract forms and flowing lines distinguish these paintings, seeming to let loose the repressed emotionality of his other work. Authored by two curators of the Whitney Museum of American Art to catalogue a recent exhibition of the same name, this volume sheds light on a little-examined part of Wyeth's remarkable and wide-ranging oeuvre.
Library Journal
Andrew Wyeth occupies a curious place in the art world: esteemed enough to have a major landscape show at the Whitney Museum of American Art yet denigrated enough that the catalog essays are all at pains to explain why it actually is appropriate to consider him an artist of top rank. The work in this show is recognizably Wyeth's, displaying his tightly detailed observation and cool surface underlain by suppressed passion. Several of his iconic temperas, such as Christina's World (1948) and Winter (1949), are included. But many unknown works are reproduced for the first time here, including many watercolors using a loose, unfinished technique. Overall, the show conveys an impressive technical mastery alongside an improvisatory freedom not usually recognized in Wyeth. This beautifully produced book from two Whitney curators offers images that will appeal to long-time fans and perhaps win some surprised admiration from skeptics. Recommended for both general and scholarly collections.--Kathryn Wekselman, Univ. of Cincinnati Lib., OH
