July 12–Chadds Ford, PA–The day began with huge crowds for the opening of the Brandywine River Museum for the occasion of Andrew Wyeth’s 100th birthday. The museum and tours of Wyeth country, mobbed and sold out, respectively, but I did manage to get my first-day Wyeth stamp. Three generations of family painting, men, women, children, and grandchildren are amply represented in the collection. You can see an ample representation of the other people in their lives–the mysterious Christina demystified in her elder world, and more of the Helga series. In the alternate galleries, you’ll find a great selection from the works of the other family members. I was particularly struck by a portrait of Andy Warhol by Jamie Wyeth, who continues to live and paint in this beautiful countryside that inspired his family. The beautifully curated Centennial exhibit runs until September 17, 2017.
