About Jamie Wyeth

Realist painter Jamie Wyeth is the son of Andrew Wyeth and the grandson of N.C. Wyeth. Though many of his works depict the Maine coast, animals, and wildlife, Jamie Wyeth has also painted portraits of political and entertainment figures, including the likes of President John F. Kennedy, Rudolf Nureyev, Andy Warhol, and Arnold Schwarzenegger; made charcoal drawings that documented the unfolding drama of the Senate Watergate hearings in the 1970s; and made paintings for Stephen King's ABC-TV miniseries Kingdom Hospital. His style is notable for its bold contract and lush, almost tactile surfaces.

American, b. 1946, Wilmington, Delaware, based in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania and Tenants Harbor, St. George, Maine
