Stamps com­mem­o­rate centennial of An­drew Wyeth

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

The U.S. Postal Ser­vice is is­su­ing stamps com­mem­o­rat­ing the centennial of artist An­drew Wyeth. It says Wyeth “found end­less in­spi­ra­tion” in his home­town of Chadds Ford, Penn., and in ru­ral Maine. It said each one of the dozen An­drew Wyeth For­ever stamps will fea­ture a de­tail from one of his paint­ings, in­clud­ing per­haps his most fa­mous, 1948’s “Christina’s World.” The mu­seum says Wyeth worked “in a re­al­is­tic style that de­fied artis­tic trends” and “cre­ated haunt­ing and enig­matic paint­ings based largely on peo­ple and places in his life.” It says his body of work “con­tin­ues to re­sist easy or com­fort­able in­ter­pre­ta­tion.” Wyeth died in 2009.
