Virtual Gallery Talk with Victoria Wyeth: Women as Models
Join Victoria Wyeth as she shares her uniquely personal perspectives on the art of her grandfather, Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009). In March, as part of Women’s History Month, Victoria’s talk will focus on Wyeth’s depictions of women models, including Christina Olson, Siri Erickson, Helga Testorf, Senna Moore, Ann Call and Elaine Benner. The program will be held on Zoom and participants may submit questions in advance during the registration process. Limited tickets are available. All proceeds support the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art.
In the meantime, catch up on new virtual tours, activities and upcoming events in this week’s edition of “Brandywine at Home” !
Discover a distinguished collection of nineteenth- and twentieth-century American art, housed in a renovated nineteenth-century mill with a dramatic steel and glass addition that overlooks the bucolic Brandywine River. The extraordinary site—the intersection of art and nature—emphasizes the Brandywine Conservancy’s commitment to the preservation of the natural, cultural and scenic resources of the region.
Renowned for its holdings of the Wyeth family of artists, the Museum features galleries dedicated to the work of N.C. Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth and Jamie Wyeth. The Museum’s outstanding Heritage Collection is a cross section of American art, with a special focus on artistic practice in the Brandywine valley. Nineteenth- and twentieth-century landscape paintings testify to the beauty which drew well-known artists to the area. Important portraits, still life paintings and notable holdings in American illustration add diversity and breadth to this unique collection.
A robust program of changing exhibitions places the Museum’s collection into the broader contexts of American art.
