To "Dear Mrs. Platt", in full: "My warmest thanks to you for writing such a warm letter. All the family will enjoy it." Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009, born in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania) found the subject matter for his paintings in the two regions in which he lives: Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania (winter) and Cushing, Maine (summer). Wyeth's work provides almost photographic depictions of lonely rural life. Hisbest-known painting, Christina's World, depicts a neighbor, polio-stricken Christina Olson, gazing from a field at her large home on a hill. In 1958, Andrew and his wife Betsy Wyeth purchased and restored The Mill, a cluster of 18th century buildings in his home town of Chadds Ford. Andrew Wyeth was the son of N. C. Wyeth and the father of Jamie Wyeth, both important artists in their own right. Multiple mailing folds. Fine condition.
