An artistic father.

“Wyeth was made susceptible to the land in part by his father, who in his art instruction implanted the idea that humble objects- including things underfoot- could be made eloquent.”-Richard Merryman
“He’d (N.C.Wyeth) get started talking and would intoxicate himself along with the rest of us students. He taught us in painting to equate ourselves with the object to the point that we became the object itself. Andy does this. He makes people out of things and that person is also himself, and vice versa. It’s a curious, mysterious, wonderful thing.”- Peter Hurd, a former student of N.C. Wyeth

The quaint and warm home.
The path from the home to the art studio.
The incredible art studio, situated to receive northern light.
