Jamie Wyeth: Unsettled

This exhibition traces a persistent vein of intriguing, often disconcerting imagery over the career of renowned artist Jamie Wyeth (b. 1946). Frequently countered and even hidden by Wyeth’s fuller body of work—particularly his well-known coastal views and farmscapes—the darker and more troubling imagery is constant throughout his oeuvre. Whether he is introducing curious characters or surveying strange landscapes, Wyeth is at home with uneasy subjects and a master of the unsettled mood.

We had the great pleasure of visiting the Brandywine Museum of Art again... this time for the latest Jamie Wyeth show.  Love that he had such a dark side to his works.  And it's wonderful the museum embraces that fact.
