Andrew Wyeth, probably the most renowned painter in the United States, died Friday at his home in Chadds Ford, Pa. He was 91.

Mr. Wyeth was the second - following his father N.C. Wyeth, and succeeded by his son, Jamie - in a dynasty of celebrated painters whom most critics belittled as illustrators during an era when the visual arts crackled with experimentation.

Mr. Wyeth preferred to work in tempera, a resistant medium that most of his contemporaries regarded as obsolete. Its sensuous asperity suited his largely sunless vision of rural American vistas and characters tattered by time and isolation. ~SFGate

Compelling work and a long life.
I find all the Wyeth's work of interest. Fancy three generations of artists- N.C., Andrew, and Jamie!!
