Andrew Wyeth

Andy Wyeth - more contrastThis picture shows famous artist Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009) in front of his home in Port Clyde. He is the young man in the big white hat, sketching to the admiration of the local boys surrounding him. My father took this photograph many years ago and his dog Blackie is in it! I wish I could post some of Andy’s beautiful paintings, but they are not in public domain. Instead I will add a recent picture I took of that same area. As a sneak peek: you’ll see Andy’s name mentioned several times in the sequel to Call Me Amy.7 View from Horse Point Road - Copy - Copy

  1. Marcia, do you know when the photo was taken? It’s awesome!

    • Thanks, Marianne! The photo was taken mid-1930s when Andy was still a teenager. :)
