    The Wyeths & American Artists in Maine: Selections from the Collection of the Farnsworth Art Museum

    As a  source of inspriration, Maine has played an important role in American art and culture since the  19th century.  It was particularly attractive to ealry American painters who interpreted  the State’s vast wildernesses and rockbound coast as emblematic of the  nation’s rugged independence and unique spiritual relationship with nature.  The reverence for nature elequently writen of in Henry David Thoreau’s The Maine Woods has continued to inform the work of artists to the present day.   The Farnsworth Art Museum  holds one of the foremost collections of painting by artists  in Maine,  including work by George Bellows, Robert Henri, Marsden Hartley, Childe Hassam, Fitz Henry Lane, Rockwell Kent and John Marin.  The Museum and associated Wyeth Center also has an outstanding collection of painting by three generations of the Wyeth family. The exhibition will include work by N.C., Andrew, and Jamie. 2017 will mark the 100 anniversary of Andrew Wyeth’s birth.
