Edition 108/150, framed
Sheet size: 25 x 20 inches

Jamie Wyeth (b. 1946) is a third-generation artist, distinguished in his own right as a contemporary realist painter. Many of his works reflect the innate beauty of the Maine and Pennsylvania landscape and wildlife or depict important individuals and cultural events in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. However, others are more dramatically Avant-garde, transmitting the artist’s raw response to humanity through cropped and contorted multimedia compositions.

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.
