Every Leaf and Twig: Andrew Wyeth's Botanical Imagination

February 24, 2024 - September 15, 2024

1 Hoffman's Mill Rd., US Rt. 1, Chadds Ford, PA 19317

  • Details

    This exhibition tells the story of Andrew Wyeth’s focus on the fragile rhythms and intimate dramas of plant life. Drawn exclusively from the holdings of the Wyeth Foundation for American Art, most of the 40 watercolors and drawings on view have never been exhibited before. As visionary and poetic responses rather than scientific illustrations, they reveal an insufficiently understood aspect of the work of an iconic American artist, and one that is especially timely as the web of botanical relationships that inspired Wyeth is impacted by rapid changes in the very ecosystems that inspired him.
